The United Nations said several countries are violating arms embargoes on Libya and worsening the eight-year civil war.

A draft report named Jordan, Turkey, Chad, Sudan and the United Arab Emirates among those supplying weapons and military support over the past year.

Both sides in the war – the UN-recognised government in Tripoli, and forces loyal to renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar – received foreign help.

Experts say it is “highly probable” that a jet from a Haftar ally launched the air raid that killed 53 refugees at a migrant centre in July.

How are outside powers redrawing the battle lines of the conflict?

And can they be stopped?
