The rival government appointed by Libya’s eastern-based parliament said on Tuesday that it had arrived in the capital, where the unity government has refused to cede power, prompting fighting between their militia backers. The AFP news agency reports, in a story that can be read in full on the News Blog page of the Future Media website, that in February, the parliament in the eastern city of Tobruk designated former interior minister Fathi Bashagha as prime minister. But he has failed to oust the Tripoli-based unity administration led by premier Abdulhamid Dbeibah, who has said repeatedly he will only cede power to an elected government.
