The United Nations group of experts on Sudan said that the Darfur armed groups have reinforced their presence in Libya, some of whom had participated in the military operations carried out by the so-called Dignity Forces.

"These groups are involved in mercenary activities and others, such as smuggling, establishing illegal checkpoints, and banditry," UN group of experts clarified in their report.

They also warned that the groups could become an integral part of the conflict if their presence was protracted in Libya.
