Gunmen storm Libyan parliament

Gunmen yesterday stormed Libya's parliament, forcing Members of Parliament to abandon a vote on a new prime minister.

It is reported that lawmakers left the building after hearing gunshots.

The attempted vote followed the resignation of Abdullah al-Thinni, who stepped down as prime minister earlier this month after he and his family were targeted by militiamen.

Libya has been plagued by instability since armed groups toppled Muammar Gaddafi's regime in 2011.
