Rogue Libyan general's troops attack parliament

Published: 05.18.14, 17:47 / Israel News

A spokesman for a rogue Libyan general says his forces have attacked parliament to arrest Islamists there, but were met with resistance.


Mohammed al-Hegazi, a spokesman for Gen. Khalifa Hiftar, made the comments to Libya's Alahrar television station after heavy gunfire erupted Sunday outside the Libyan parliament.


Lawmakers say security officials evacuated them from the building out of fears it would be stormed. (AP)
