BBC News reports that Libya's rival politicians have signed a UN-brokered deal to form a unity government.
UN envoy Martin Kobler described the deal as historic, saying Libya had "turned a page" in efforts to achieve reconciliation and stability.
However, the heads of the rival parliaments declined to sign the deal because of major disagreements, and the armed groups which control much of Libya were not part of the talks.
The signing of a long-delayed peace deal had been postponed from Wednesday to Thursday because of what a U.N. spokesman described as "logistical problems."
