Political crisis in Libya

This week militants attacked the Corinthia Hotel in Tripoli, killing at least nine people. The attack comes as the latest round of UN peace talks on Libya kicked off in Geneva. The talks are meant to help various factions establish a unity government and end months of political unrest and violence. William Lawrence, a professor at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University joins us to discuss the ongoing political crisis in Libya.
