But meetings of the Joint Military Commission in northern Libya, attended by five officers each from the two sides, have yet to make progress on other key demands of a U.N.-brokered agreement, underlining its fragility. Its domed Ouagadougou Conference Centre, an undamaged part of which is now the Joint Military Commission headquarters, serves as a reminder of what is at stake. Today a new banner for the commission hangs where GNA and LNA negotiators hash out details of their October ceasefire. The U.N. process helped resolve an eight-month LNA blockade of oil exports which aggravated economic problems in both east and west. The third strand of talks beyond the military commission and the political process is economic negotiations.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The United States unilaterally blacklisted Libya’s Kaniyat militia and its leader on Wednesday after Russia last week prevented a U.N. Security Council committee from imposing sanctions over human rights abuses by the group. “Mohamed al-Kani and the Kaniyat militia have tortured and killed civilians during a cruel campaign of oppression in Libya,” U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement. The United States and Germany earlier this month proposed that the U.N. Security Council’s 15-member Libya sanctions committee impose an asset freeze and travel ban on Kaniyat militia and al-Kani. Last month Libyan authorities dug up 12 bodies from four unmarked graves in Tarhouna, adding to the scores of corpses already discovered since June. Russia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt support the LNA.

DUBAI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates has stopped issuing new visas to citizens of 13 mostly Muslim-majority countries, including Iran, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to a document issued by a state-owned business park.

The document said applications for new employment and visit visas had been suspended for nationals - those outside the UAE - of 13 countries that also included Somalia, Libya and Yemen until further notice. A diplomat commented that the UAE had strained relations with some of the states listed, such as Turkey. Last week, Pakistan’s foreign ministry said the UAE had stopped processing new visas for its citizens and those of some other countries, but that those already holding valid visas were not affected and could still enter the UAE.

That’s why he (al-Khalifa) invited me to come soon for a formal visit in Bahrain and I will do this happily,” Netanyahu said in a statement about a phone call he held with the crown prince.

Qatar airport police officers charged over invasive searches of women

DUBAI (Reuters) - Qatar’s public prosecutor has filed criminal charges against an unspecified number of police officers working at Qatar’s Hamad airport after women said they were invasively searched there last month. Qatari officials said the searches were conducted in order to locate the mother of a new-born child found abandoned in a garbage bin in an airport bathroom. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said the searches were appalling and Qatar’s Prime Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al-Thani has apologised. The public prosecutor did not say what crimes had been committed, how many police officers had been charged or detail the penalties they faced, such as imprisonment, if convicted. The public prosecutor said it had also charged the child’s mother, who has left the country, with attempted murder and that it had launched legal proceedings to arrest her.

Russia stops U.N. blacklisting of Libya militia, leader

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Russia on Friday stopped a U.N. Security Council committee from blacklisting a Libyan militia group and its leader for human rights abuses because it said it wanted to see more evidence first that they had killed civilians. The United States and Germany proposed that the council’s 15-member Libya sanctions committee impose an asset freeze and travel ban on the al-Kaniyat militia and its leader Mohammed al-Kani. Such a move has to be agreed by consensus, but Russia said it could not approve. Libya descended into chaos after the NATO-backed overthrow of leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. In addition, UNSMIL verified numerous summary executions at Tarhouna Prison conducted by the al-Kaniyat militia on September 13, 2019,” the proposal read.

So our daughter, played by newcomer Kiera Allen, has been locked in her room by her misaligned mother, played by veteran Sarah Paulson, and is convinced that she needs to escape. So to borrow a page out of their book, I storyboarded every single frame of this movie by hand before we started shooting. Every single shot inside this room here is repeated from an earlier shot in the movie. We’re landing on a shot of Kiera in a stage on a set where the roof is actually flat and the walls are tilted to the side. And this shot sort of was actually the first shot that we did on day one of shooting.

OPEC+ made a record cut of 9.7 million bpd, or 10% of global output, from May as the pandemic destroyed demand. Since August, the group has been pumping more as the cut tapered down to 7.7 million bpd, of which OPEC’s share is 4.868 million bpd. Another 2 million bpd increase is scheduled in January, although Saudi Arabia and Russia are in favour of continuing with the current cuts, OPEC sources said. LIBYA, IRAQOctober's increase means OPEC is pumping about 2.2 million bpd more than June's figure, which was the lowest since 1991. The survey found output increased by 250,000 bpd in October, a faster rebound than some analysts and OPEC officials expected.

- Libya's National Oil Company said Monday it had restarted production at Al-Fil oil field, closed since January by the forces of eastern military strongman Khalifa Haftar. Libya's main warring factions signed a purportedly permanent truce last week, a month after a blockade on the country's oil exports by one faction in the country's six-year-long civil war was lifted. Oil prices are still firmly in correction territory, with international benchmark Brent crude down 33% year to date and stuck between $40 and $43 per barrel for several weeks. Unbridled by OPEC output restrictions imposed in April due to its long-running conflict, Libya's exports and outlook for output growth already appear to be weighing on markets. A roller-coaster year for Libyan productionBlockades by rebel militias of the eastern-based Libyan National Army and force majeur declarations by the state oil company have strangled war-stricken Libya's oil production for much of the past year.
