Tripoli residents call for disarming of militias
Tripoli, January 6 (ANI): Tripoli residents have called on the Libyan government to disarm militia members deployed in the nation's capital. The militias, led the nine month uprising, backed by NATO air strikes, to end Gaddafi's 42 year rule in the country. Now though, they are reluctant to disband and lay down their arms. They are vying with each other for influence, and believe that to ensure, they receive their due share of political power, they need to keep an armed presence in the capital.
