The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said the war in Libya threatens extending to the Sahel-Sahara region after it has become a battleground for foreign forces.

Guterres said on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum that the ceasefire in Libya was fragile amid reports of breaches and attacks on the Mitiga Airport in Libya.

Meanwhile, the German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the scenario of Syria shouldn't be repeated in Libya and the conflict in there shouldn't turn into a new proxy war.
