Libya crisis: Rival authorities announce ceasefire

The Tripoli-based and internationally recognised Government of National Accord published a statement that also calls for elections in March next year.

It has been battling against the forces of Gen Khalifa Haftar, which control large parts of the east and south of Libya.
Both sides in Libya's civil war have international support. Turkey, Italy and Qatar are among those siding with the GNA in Tripoli, while Russia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates back Gen Haftar.

France is also thought to back Gen Haftar, although leaders in Paris have repeatedly denied this.
