Analysis: Turkey and Russia have gained various levels of leverage in Libya by virtue of their military presence on the ground, with no signs that their forces will leave anytime soon.

Analysis: After the coup, Washington seems satisfied with a partial solution that restores aid and re-establishes Khartoum's international relations but falls short of Sudanese demands for a civilian takeover.
