In Libya, thousands took to the streets in the capital Tripoli on Wednesday to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the uprising that toppled longtime dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The uprising, known as the February 17 Revolution, ended with a 2011 U.S.-led military intervention that helped oust Gaddafi. Libya slid into conflict soon after. The country currently has two competing governments. In January, General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he wants to begin taking “decisive military action” against the self-proclaimed Islamic State in Libya.
