Al-Jazeera World 2017 Libyas Shifting Sands 1of2 Derna

A rare glimpse into the fight against ISIS in two strategically important cities of Derna and Sirte. The 2011 Arab Spring saw the fall of heads of government in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. A series of internationally recognised but unstable governments in Tripoli failed to unify the country or revive the economy. Amid the chaos, weak border controls and a lack of effective government, ISIL started to gain a foothold in the eastern coastal city of Derna during 2012; and then in Sirte during 2014.
