In Libya, Gaddafi supporters, Government troops swap POWs

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

In Libya, the supporters of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi and Government troops have swapped prisoners of war and wrapped up a truce.

Colonel Ahmad Omar Ibrahim, of the military council of the city of Garyane, has said that the troops and rebels declared a ceasefire Monday following a spate of armed clashes.

The military swapped 24 Gaddafi supporters for 4 government troops. According to the latest reports, four people died in the clashes, while more than 50 others were injured.

The former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, was seized and brutally murdered by rebels in October last year.

But the armed groups that remain loyal to Gaddafi continue resisting the troops of Libya’s provisional government.
