Hundreds turned out in Tripoli and Benghazi to hand in weapons left over from last year’s war.
With the government struggling to impose authority, it has launched the initiative in an attempt to make the country safer and crack down on armed militants.
One participant said, “As part of the initiative I have handed over my weapon. We want our country to be safe and secure. We don’t want weapons anymore. It’s over, the time of war is over. We got rid of the tyrant. Thank God.”
