Macron brings Libyan rivals together.

The French President Emmanuel Macron is hosting face-to-face talks between two rival Libyan leaders in the latest bid to try to bring stability to the country.

Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of the UN-backed government, and Khalifa Haftar, who leads the so-called Libyan National Army in eastern Libya, are yet to reach a compromise on sharing power.

French officials are hoping they will agree to a ceasefire and to hold elections as soon as possible.

The huge problems posed by the refugee flow through Libya and across the Mediterranean has made bringing peace in the country an urgent priority for Europe.
