European Union foreign ministers are considering sanctions on three Libyans they see as blocking efforts by the United Nations to form a government of national unity and may go ahead even if a government is agreed, diplomats said.The three under the threat of sanctions are Nouri Abu Sahmain, the head of Libya's General National Congress in Tripoli, one of two rival parliaments, Khalifa al-Ghwell, who heads one of Libya's two rival governments based in Tripoli, and Aguila Saleh, the president of Libya's internationally recognized parliament in Tobruk.Were no deal sealed this weekend, the full Tobruk parliament will likely have to vote on a new unity government, making it less likely that the European Union imposes sanctions on the three politicians, as it may need them for a deal, Libyan sources say.
