During the annual International Security Conference in Munich, the rise of the terrorist group Islamic State in Libya is high on the agenda. In the Dutch news programme 'Nieuwsuur' Clingendael's general director Ko Colijn outlines the current situation in Libya.
Since the Arab spring in 2011, Libya is embroiled in a bloody battle. The country faces constant fighting and Islamic State is on the advance. The general belief is that the US is poised to take action.
'Nieuwsuur' (February 11, 2016) interviewed Ko Colijn and Africa reporter Gerbert van der Aa.
