TRIPOLI - Libya's Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim said Friday that the Libyan army will withdraw from the rebel-held city of Misrata.

Speaking to reporters, Kaim said that the Libyan army will leave the city and local tribes and people will try to work out a solution to the problems either through force or negotiations.

"The situation in Misrata ... will be dealt with by the tribes around Misrata, and Misrata's residents and not by the Libyan army," he said.

"We will leave the tribes around Misrata and Misrata's people to deal with the situation, either using force or negotiation," he said.
