Turkey’s president has announced that Turkish soldiers are being deployed to Libya to help in the fight against renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar.
That comes as Libya’s UN-recognised government declares three days of mourning for the victims of Saturday’s air attack on a military academy in Tripoli – carried out by forces loyal to Haftar.
At least 30 students were killed and dozens more wounded.
Al Jazeera’s Mahmoud Abdelwahed reports from Tripoli.
