TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libyans will tackle and eradicate Islamic State in their country but Libya is already benefiting from international cooperation on intelligence, the prime minister of the U.N.-backed unity government in Tripoli told Reuters in an interview on Friday.

Fayez Seraj said efforts to unify Libya's armed factions were progressing and that no one - including controversial eastern commander Khalifa Haftar - would be excluded from a national army as long as they submitted to the central political authority.
