U.S. says concerned about Libyan conflict turning bloodier with Russian mercenaries - official

WASHINGTON, Dec 21 (Reuters) - The United States is very concerned about the intensification of the conflict in Libya, with a rising number of reported Russian mercenaries supporting Khalifa Haftar’s forces on the ground, a senior State Department official said on Saturday

The United States continues to recognise the Government of National Accord led by Fayez al-Serraj, the official said, but added that Washington is not taking sides in the conflict and is talking to all stakeholders who could be influential in trying to force an agreement.
