    CAIRO - Libyan Deputy Prime Minister Fathi Al-Mejbari has distanced himself from the authorization Premier Fayez al-Sarraj gave for an Italian naval mission to support the North African country's coast guard, the website of the LibyaChannel TV reported Friday. Mejbari was quoted as saying that the mission was "an explicit infraction of the political accord," in particular regarding the "sovereignty of Libya".
    The deputy prime minister also reportedly said that the authorization "does not express the will of the Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord".
    Mejbari told Italy to "immediately stop the violation of Libyan sovereignty" and called on the UN Security Council, the Arab League and the African Union to intervene, the site said.
