The reappointment of Thinni, a former defence minister and career soldier who has been prime minister since March, sets him the challenge of reasserting government control over a country where many fear a descent into full-scale civil war. Foreign Minister John Kerry called Thinni before his appointment to give his support, the Libyan government said in a statement.

Patrick Sawyer, the first case, came in from Liberia, then collapsed at Lagos airport on July 20. The shift to Port Harcourt shows how easily containment efforts can be undermined.
