French, German ministers arrive in Libya to back unity government

The French and German foreign ministers arrived in Libya on Saturday for unannounced talks with the head of the unity government Fayaz Seraj to offer support as he seeks to stabilize the North African state, a French diplomatic source said.
The visit by Jean-Marc Ayrault and Frank-Walter Steinmeier is part of efforts by the European Union to take the lead on the Libya crisis as fears mount of an uncontrolled new tide of migrants into Italy from Libya unless law and order can be rebuilt soon in the country.
