The warring parties in Libya have been urged to form a government of national unity, at a high-level UN meeting on the future of their country on Friday.

Failure to do so, would only allow the extremist militants of ISIL to gain a stronger foothold in Libya, the meeting heard.

Following decades of dictatorship and the fall of Muammar Gadaffi in 2011, rival political factions began to fragment the country, setting up rival capitals which led to increased fighting and economic chaos.
