Libya divided: the state of Barqa is declared semi-autonomous

I just read it at S.O.S Lybia:
"Today's conference said the new eastern Libya state, which they named "Barqa", will have its own parliament, police force, courts and capital — Benghazi— to run its own affairs. The plan seeks to revive the pre-Gadhafi system in place from 1951 until 1963, when Libya, ruled by a monarchy, was divided into three states: Tripolitania in the west, Fezzan in the southwest and Cyrenaica in the east — or Barqa, as it was called in Arabic." (read the whole article)

Nothing was reported at the mainstream media.
