New Libya PM's home attacked as unrest over his rule grows

A picture taken on May 21, 2014 shows Libya's Prime Minister Ahmed Miitig holding a press conference in the capital TripoliArmed men attacked the home of Libya’s new prime minister on Tuesday, two days after he won a parliamentary vote of confidence but with opposition to his proposed government rising. Libya’s General National Congress, or interim parliament, had elected 42-year-old businessman Ahmed Miitig as premier in a chaotic vote this month to replace Abdallah al-Thani, who had resigned for security reasons. The GNC passed a vote of confidence in Miitig, who is backed by the Islamists, and his new cabinet amid rising lawlessness in the North African nation dogged by power struggles between rival former-rebel militias. Libya has been awash with weapons since the NATO-backed uprising that toppled and killed longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.
