The president of Libya's General National Congress resigned Tuesday, becoming the most-senior casualty of a new law that bans officials who had served under late dictator Moammar Gadhafi from holding public office.
A political crisis is brewing in Libya with the imminent resignations of the president of the legislature, dozens of lawmakers and as many as eight Cabinet ministers, following the adoption of a law that bans officials who had served under late dictator Moammar Gadhafi from holding public office.
The United States, Britain and France said on Wednesday that the "international community" is concerned over "armed intimidation" of Libya's elected government as it struggles to consolidate a democracy more than a year and a half after the death of dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
Libyan officials on Wednesday condemned Tuesday’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.
Mohamed al-Megariaf, who served as Libya's ambassador to India at the time of his defection in the 1980s, announced his resignation in an emotional speech to the General National Congress in Tripoli.
