Libya's UN-recognised government has asked the Security Council to lift an arms embargo to fight against ISIL and other armed groups.
Diplomats from Egypt and Libya addressed the UN during an emergency session with proposals to stop the descent into chaos.
The UN emergency session on Libya came days after Egypt carried out air-strikes in response to the beheadings of twenty-one Egyptian Christians.
Now it's alleged that those strikes killed civilians as well. But Egypt's President has denied this.
