Libya's internationally recognized government Tuesday urged fellow Arab countries to arm its military so it can face the expanding ISIS affiliate in the country.Foreign Minister Mohammed al-Dairi made the appeal at an emergency Arab League meeting in Cairo. He warned that his ill-equipped government is unable to fight off ISIS, which he said was seeking to establish a base in Libya as it faces U.S.-led airstrikes in Iraq and Syria.Al-Dairi's eastern-based government has in the past appealed for a lifting of the embargo, including after Libya's ISIS took control of the central coastal city of Sirte recently.
