Reuters | Monday, Sep 1, 2014

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's PTV channel returned to air on Monday after the army and paramilitary Rangers cleared its headquarters of protesters and put the building under protection.

Earlier a Reuters photographer saw the military escorting the demonstrators out of the building in central Islamabad in a peaceful and orderly way.

The North African oil producer appears at risk of splitting or even sliding into civil war as political divisions and fighting among former rebels who helped topple Gaddafi have created uncertainty and chaos.
