CAIRO (Reuters) – Eastern Libyan forces commander Khalifa Haftar arrived in Berlin on Saturday for a summit that will take place on Sunday, Libyan al-hadath tv announced on their twitter account.

Germany and the United Nations will push rival Libyan camps and their foreign backers fighting over the capital to agree on Sunday to a truce and monitoring mechanism as first steps towards peace.
