FILE - In this Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 file photo, former Miss Turkey Merve Buyuksarac speaks to The Associated Press in Istanbul, Turkey. It has become as easy to get jailed for offending the country’s paramount leader, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as it is in countries where laws forbid insults to royals. The trend alarms many people who have harbored hope for Turkey as a beacon of Western-style government in the Islamic world. Last year, former Miss Turkey Buyuksarac posted a seemingly innocuous poem on her Instagram site. In January, Buyuksarac was arrested over suspicion of violating the law prohibiting insults to public servants. She could face up to two years in prison. (AP Photo/Emrah Gurel, File)ISTANBUL (AP) — There's no monarch in democratic Turkey — but you might not know it watching the news these days.

Bernardino Leon, U.N. special envoy for Libya, attends a meeting with members of the Libyan General National Congress in TripoliBy Aziz El Yaakoubi SKHIRATE, Morocco (Reuters) - Libya's warring factions held United Nations-backed talks on Thursday in an effort to end a conflict between two rival governments that threatens to drive the country into full-blown civil war. Air strikes between rival forces intensified before Thursday's negotiations on Libya, where Western governments worry spreading chaos is allowing Islamist militants to gain ground in a threat to mainland Europe across the Mediterranean. The internationally recognised government and elected House of Representatives have had to operate out of the east of the north African oil state since an armed alliance known as Libya Dawn took over the capital Tripoli and set up its own self-declared government last year. Both centres of power are backed by heavily-armed alliances of former rebels who fought together to oust Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 but later fell out in a battle for control of oil wealth.
