French President Emmanuel Macron has brought the two main rival groups together for face-to-face talks.
The meeting in Paris is seen as a step towards reconciliation.
The latest attempt follows six years of conflict and chaos, since longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown by rebels supported by a French-led NATO air campaign.
Now, Libya has two power centres; the UN-backed government of National Accord headed by Fayyej al-Sarraj and the so-called
Libyan National Army. General Khalifa Haftar’s forces control a large part of eastern Libya and its oil fields.
How far will Emanuelle Macron succeed when several previous attempts have failed? Why is he mediating?
