Libya’s Haftar returns to Benghazi after long absence

Benghazi, Khalifa Haftar, a veteran general in Libya, has returned to the eastern city of Benghazi following an extended absence, including reported treatment in a hospital in Paris.

Photos and video clips posted on social media late on Thursday showed Haftar giving a salute as he descended from a private jet, accompanied by uniformed officials of the Libyan National Army (LNA).

A line of men in fatigue uniform and other officials then crowded over Haftar, with some giving him hugs and kissing his forehead.

Among those who greeted him was his chief of staff, General Abdel-Razeq Nathouri, who survived an assassination attempt outside Benghazi on April 18.
