Shooting outside Libyan parliament delays vote
A spokesman for the interim Libyan parliament said shooting broke out outside the main entrance to the parliament on Tuesday, causing lawmakers to postpone the selection of a new prime minister in the capital, Tripoli.

 

Parliament spokesman Omar Humaidan said there was an exchange of fire when presidential guards prevented an armed group from entering the building while members of the interim parliament were holding a special session to select a new prime minister, more than a month after sacking liberal-leaning Prime Minister Ali Zidan.
