Renegade Libyan general says parliament suspended

Published: 05.19.14, 00:45 / Israel News

A group led by a renegade Libyan general said Sunday it suspended parliament after launching an attack against the legislative body.


Gen. Mokhtar Farnana, speaking on a Libyan television channel, said a group led by Gen. Khalifa Hifter had assigned a 60-member constituent's assembly to take over for parliament.


Farnana said Libya's current government would act on an emergency basis. He did not elaborate.


He also said Sunday's attack on Libya's parliament was not a coup, but "fighting by people's choice." (AP)
