Libyans have struggled to restore order to their country since the death of longtime strongman Muammar Gaddafi in late 2011.

The transitional government and its security forces, meanwhile, have struggled to contain the armed militias that helped overthrow Gaddafi but which held onto their weapons after the 2011 uprising.
