Libya’s conflict is increasingly becoming like Syria, a US State Department official said on Saturday, ahead of a summit in Berlin to discuss ways to end a war over Libya's capital, Tripoli.

“I think it’s so complex and the heels are so far dug in that I would have moderate expectations as we go into this,” the official told reporters travelling with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo when asked about success of the summit.
