Speaker of Libya’s eastern parliament lashes out at UN envoy

TRIPOLI — The head of Libya’s internationally-recognized parliament based in the country’s far east has criticized the UN envoy to the North African country, saying the diplomat is acting like a “ruler.” Parliament speaker Agila Saleh also accused the international community of trying to impose a unity government that goes against a UN brokered agreement reached by Libya’s rival parties last December. The remarks reflect the rocky path that Libya faces toward unity. The country slid into chaos after the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed dictator Moammar Gadhafi, with an array of militias, including extremist groups, carving out fiefdoms and backing rival authorities.
