Libya militias take control of Tripoli govt offices


BENGHAZI: Libya’s toothless outgoing government admitted on Monday it had lost control of government offices in Tripoli to armed militias. The interim government led by prime minister Abdullah al-Thani, which resigned last week and has taken refuge in the east of the country, said armed groups were preventing government workers from entering their offices. “Ministry and state offices in Tripoli have been occupied by armed militias who are preventing government workers from entering and are threatening their superiors,” the government said in a statement released overnight.
