Tripoli (AFP) – The United Nations’ envoy to Libya Martin Kobler said Sunday that his staff had returned to the capital Tripoli after leaving amid violence in mid-2014.

“The UN staff will be in Tripoli five days a week… I am not visiting Tripoli any more, I am working out of Tripoli,” Kobler said at a joint press conference with Ahmed Maiteeq, the deputy head of a UN-backed unity government.
