The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has passed a resolution mandating a multinational operation to oversee a ceasefire in Libya.

The British-drafted resolution demands the warring parties "commit to a lasting ceasefire without preconditions.

It also called on the African Union, the Arab League and the EU to help supervise a ceasefire and urge the Libyan parties to resume a political dialogue.
