Libyan Prime Minister Announces Resignation

Published
Libya's only internationally recognized legitimate leader, Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni, has announced his resignation.
His Cabinet, working from hotel rooms after armed insurgent groups seized the capital of Tripoli one year ago, has been criticized as ineffective in stopping Libya's violence. He announced his intent to formally resign Tuesday during a television interview in which he answered questions from angry citizens. The Islamic State has also made inroads and alliances in the country, which has the largest proven oil reserves in Africa.
