    An armed group has stormed the Tripoli headquarters of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) in Libya. Security forces clashed with the armed men at the landmark building in the centre of the city, and blasts and gunfire could be heard, witnesses say. A security official at the site said at least two staff members and two gunmen have been killed in the attack. Last week, the UN announced that a truce between warring militias had been agreed in the capital. A UN-backed government is nominally in power in Tripoli but militias occupy much of the rest of the country. ...

    On August 27, fierce battles erupted in Tripoli's districts after the Seventh Brigade, an armed group based in Tarhouna, 65km southeast of the capital, launched a surprise offensive against rival militias. A truce was reached the next day but clashes resumed shortly after, forcing authorities to close Tripoli's only functioning airport. On Monday, the social media website Facebook was blocked in Tripoli and the surrounding cities. Libyan utility LPTIC, which owns the two state-run telecoms firms, said in a statement that a lack of security had led to outages. Maintenance engineers were unable to reach some stations which had...

    A small British firm based in south Wales had secured a contract to provide security for American diplomatic facilities in Benghazi despite having only a few months experience in the country. Sources have told the Daily Telegraph that just five unarmed locally hired Libyans were placed on duty at the compound on eight-hour shifts under a deal that fell outside the State Department's global security contracting system. Blue Mountain, the Camarthen firm that won a $387,000 (241,000) one year contract from the US State Department to protect the compound in May, sent just one British employee, recruited from the celebrity...

    An email released by WikiLeaks on Thursday provides new insight into Hillary Clintons carelessness with sensitive information in her emails and shows she was warned by close confidants to be more cautious even long after leaving the State Department. WikiLeaks released a 2014 email conversation between Clinton and her current campaign Chairman John Podesta about the tactical situation in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. In what until today was the latest available email in the chain, Clinton stated that "there may be opportunities as the Iraqi piece improves." She also asked Podesta if he had "any idea...

    Top U.S. State Department officials, including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were warned in an email not to blame the obscure “inflammatory” Internet video for the 2012 attack on Benghazi. That email was sent from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya three days after the September 11 attack, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, and two days before then-United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice blamed the event on the video while speaking to five Sunday talk shows, according to Fox News. “The film’s not as explosive of an issue here as it appears to be...

    The rapid deterioration of Libyas oil-dependent economy is threatening the objectives of the countrys new Western-backed government and budding efforts to confront the Islamic State in North Africa, political and security analysts say. Within hours of arriving in Tripoli two weeks ago, the government made controlling the nations oil a priority. It persuaded a powerful militia to hand over three oil terminals, and the national oil company gave its support. But the road to securing Africas largest reserves is riddled with even greater obstacles, and bringing the battered industry back to its full potential promises to be a colossal mission....

    Masked ISIS terrorists have beheaded two men they accused of being sorcerers in front of a baying crowd in Libya. In its latest barbaric video, the accused - both blindfolded, bound and wearing orange jumpsuits - are led in the centre of a crowd to be executed in Tripoli. The footage was reportedly shot in Libya, where there is estimated to be some 2,000 jihadis and they have begun to impose sharia law and horrific punishments.

    Three days after the attacks on the consulate in Benghazi and the deaths of four Americans, the US embassy in Tripoli urged Hillary Clinton and other State Department officials not to blame it on the YouTube video, “Innocence of Muslims.” In fact, the thus-far anonymous official warned that the video hadn’t actually created that much of an issue in Libya — and that putting an international spotlight on it would make the situation in the failed state exponentially worse. Yet two days later, Susan Rice went on five Sunday talk shows to push that meme, and Hillary and the...

    As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued to blame the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi on a controversial YouTube video, a State Department official at Embassy Tripoli in Libya wrote an email to D.C. colleges that urged them to be “cautious” in their messaging just a few days after the attack. According to the email from the official in Libya on Sept. 14, 2012, “it is becoming increasingly clear that the series of events in Benghazi was much more terrorist attack than a protest which escalated into violence.” The email was released Friday in the first dump...

Why the Marine Hymn Contains the Verse "To the Shores of Tripoli" Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago the United States had declared war on Islam and Thomas Jefferson led the charge! At the height of the eighteenth century, Muslim pirates were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic. They attacked every ship in sight, and held the crews for exorbitant...

    WASHINGTON A senior State Department official is confirming the death of one U.S. citizen in Tuesday's attack on a Libyan hotel. The official isn't providing any further details. Libyan officials said four foreigners and five guards were killed Tuesday after gunmen stormed a luxury hotel in the Libyan capital of Tripoli. The ensuring standoff ended when two assailants set off a grenade that killed them, officials said. The attack on the Corinthia Hotel, which sits along the Mediterranean Sea, started in the morning hours and included a car bombing, said Essam al-Naas, a spokesman for a Tripoli security agency.
