CAIRO: Staff of the Libya Ministry of Justice have traveled to Egypt to receive training in forensic medicine as part of a program to support their judicial system, as many courts have shuttered, Libya news website Al-Wasat reported Saturday.
The training will include forensic analysis, discovering forgery, detection of weapons and explosives and determining their type. The trainees will be distributed among the cities of Zintan, Bani Walid, Marj, and Murzuk upon their return from Egypt, according to Al-Wasat.
Libyan Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdel Aziz told media in Cairo that President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi agreed for Egypt to train Libyan security and military forces following an August meeting with Libyan officials.
Egypt, Algeria, Italy, France and other countries have announced they would provide training to Libyans to regain the rule of law. The oil-rich country, which currently poses a threat to its neighbors because of arms and human trafficking, has been struck by sectarian and militant division since a revolt against late President Muammar Gadhafi in 2011.
