Libyan Commander Khalifa Haftar urged his forces to advance towards the centre of Tripoli on Thursday in what he said would be the "final battle" for the capital, in a speech broadcast on Al Arabiya TV.

Haftar, who heads the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA), launched an offensive in April to try to take control of Tripoli which stalled on the outskirts of the city.
