The United States and four other nations are strongly condemning the continuing violence in Libya and calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities.

Joining the US in the condemnation are Britain, France, Italy and Germany.

In a joint statement, the five nations say that Libya’s hard-fought freedom is at risk if Libyan and international terrorist groups are allowed to use the African nation as a haven.

The five nations say they stand ready to use individual sanctions in accordance with a UN Security Council resolution against those who threaten the peace, stability or security of Libya or obstruct or undermine the political process.

In the Libyan city of Benghazi on Friday, fighting raged between Islamist militias and forces loyal to Libya’s elected government. Dozens have died in three days of conflict.
