France says Libya needs 'exceptional' U.N. support
French President Francois Hollande on Thursday called on the United Nations to organize "exceptional" support for Libyan authorities to restore order there because there was a risk the country could fall into chaos.
"My main concern today is Libya," Hollande told an annual address to French diplomats. "If we do not do anything internationally, terrorism will spread across the entire region.
"It is vital that the legitimate parliament, elected by the people last June, forms an inclusive government capable of relaunching the national reconciliation process and to disarm militias. Otherwise it will be chaos."
