A three-day ceasefire has been reached between forces loyal to Libya's UN-backed government and military commander Khalifa Haftar in south of the country.

Hisham Abushkiwat, a member of the delegation that brokered the deal told media today that the ceasefire was the result of meetings aimed to halt the warfare between the two rivals.

Violence escalated in southern Libya in recent days since forces loyal to Haftar captured the Timnahent airbase in the area.
