Libya Herald reports that KFC is threatening to sue the owners of a fast food outlet in Tobruk which is falsely claiming to be an official franchise.
A spokesman for the US-based Yum Brands, which owns the KFC brand, told the news agency:
“We are shocked with the news that a KFC outlet has opened in Tobruk ... No franchise rights have been granted to any party in Libya ...
“We are in contact with local authorities and external advisers and will be filing a legal action against the company and individuals claiming to have rights to open KFC”.
