TRIPOLI - The Libyan jihadist group Ansar al-Sharia, which is linked to Al-Qaeda and deemed a terrorist organisation by the UN and the United States, announced its "dissolution" in a communique published online on Saturday.

Washington accuses the group of being behind the September 11, 2012 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi in which ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed.
