Thinni and his ministers visited the eastern city of Benghazi in a show of support for his troops battling Islamists groups. Thinni’s forces, together with troops loyal to army general Khalifa Haftar, launched an offensive against Islamist fighters in Benghazi in October – part of turmoil gripping the oil producer four years after the downfall of Muammar Gaddafi.
