Libyan Militia Leader Says He Will Run for President

Libya’s Khalifa Haftar explained Tuesday that he options operate for president as the Russian-backed militia chief tries to just take political control of the whole region following a failed navy campaign to seize the capital.

Mr. Haftar registered his candidacy in Benghazi, the country’s second-premier city and a stronghold for the navy commander, whose militia forces control a swath of eastern Libya. His fourteen-month offensive to oust the internationally-acknowledged federal government in Tripoli finished in a United Nations-brokered truce very last year.
