One step forward, two steps back
Libya is currently facing arguably its biggest challenge since the end of the 2011 conflict.
It is not the recent wave of assassinations , the series of resignations from the interim government or the approval of the political isolation law, but rather the alarming and now sustained decline in oil production.

Last year's budget: how much was spent?
A recent report sheds some light on how the LD68.5bn ($55bn) budget, approved by the National Transitional Council (NTC) in March 2012, was used.
The Audit Bureau's 2012 report, which was issued last week, says that while budgeted spending came in at around LD13bn ($11bn) less than forecast, an additional LD10bn ($8bn) was spent from an emergency or extra-budgetary fund that included disbursements to families, debts from 2011, and additional funding for ministries and the armed
