Italy: Individual Sanctions 'a Possibility'

Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni (pictured) said on Monday said that the "hypothesis" of EU sanctions against "three to four" individuals who oppose the peace process could go into effect if there aren't changes among certain factions in Tripoli, despite the fact that there was support for the process from "most" members from Libya.

He told the ANSA news agency:

"Eleven of the 13 mayors and many militias are in favour of the peace process.

"Still, there has been a strong and threatening pressure from some hardliners against the possibility that there could be positive discussion in Tripoli."
