It's not looking good in Libya. Weekend clashes in the southern town of Kufra have left 16 dead, exposing the rifts between the different groups scrambling for dominance in the country post-Gaddafi. And administrative problems have caused the interim government to postpone next week's National Assembly elections until 7 July.
The weekend's fighting was between the Touba tribe and security forces aligned with the Tripoli government, in what the BBC's correspondent characterises as a turf war over smuggling routes. But the violence shows just how close to anarchy the country is, seven months after the official end of its civil war. Last week, a militia group seized Tripoli's airport for several hours. And since last Thursday Libyan authorities have been detaining four staff of the International Criminal Court who were seeking access one of Gaddafi's sons, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.
