Libya’s Tripoli government says will ‘cease operations’

TRIPOLI- One of Libya’s rival governments has resigned, a step that bolsters efforts by a new, UN brokered unity government to establish itself in the capitol, Tripoli, despite opposition from some local militias. In a statement late Tuesday, the Tripoli-based government said it would “cease duties” as executive authority, and therefore absolve itself of responsibility for the country’s fate. Western nations view the unity government as the best hope for ending Libya’s chaos and uniting all factions against ISIS. Another, Tobruk-based government still opposes the UN-backed body.
