The Security Council is at odds over dealing with the escalating violence in Libya, where the renegade general Khalifa Haftar an offensive on the capital Tripoli leads. Britain has submitted a draft resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in the North African crisis state. However, the draft was rejected by Russia due to  critical formulations on Haftar.

Britain presented a defused version of the draft on Wednesday. However, this was rejected by the three African countries in the Security Council, Equatorial Guinea, Ivory Coast and South Africa.

General Haftar had launched an offensive on Tripoli at the beginning of April. In the fierce fighting, at least 189 people were killed and more than 816 others were injured, according to UN data. 25,000 people are on the run.

There has been chaos in Libya since the overthrow of the ruler Muammar al-Gaddafi in 2011. The government in Tripoli is weak and does not  control large parts of the country. Haftar supports a counter-government in eastern Libya.
