Rafik Hariri Center Senior Fellow Karim Mezran joins Al Jazeera English to discuss the ongoing violence in Libya:
There is growing concern about Libya’s difficult transition as this country is now polarised between the twomain factions of competing militia brigades and their political allies.
Special envoys for Libya from the Arab League, the United States and European countries have expressedtheir concerns about the situation in Libya, saying it had reached a “critical stage” and called for animmediate ceasefire.
The situation on the ground is made worse by a shaky political situation, particularly after the generalelections held in June. The successive governments that have been in place since the toppling of MuammarGaddafi have all failed to put in place the necessary institutions to govern Libya.
But are Libyans themselves responsible for the ongoing turmoil? Or has the international community failedto support their nation building?
