The Minister of Interior of the parallel government in eastern Libya, Ibrahim Bushnaf, said that the city of Benghazi is presently experiencing a state of utter chaos, which is rendering the situation completely out of control.

Bushnaf demanded the Benghazi Security Directorate to take strict measures against criminals who break the law, stressing the importance of dealing with them firmly and to extend security and the law by not permitting them to treat the situation with impunity.

Bushnaf also urged local residents to support the public and assist the security services by forming a public pressure group, which rejects violence and condemns the targeting of security institutions.
