Tripoli is the capital and largest city of Libya, located in the northwestern part of the country. Tripoli was founded in the 7th century BC by the Phoenicians and the site of many archaeological ruins. As a result of the 1911-12 Turko-Italian War, Italy took control of the country. Libya became one of the major battlegrounds in North Africa during the Second World War.
