Libya parliament votes to return to UN-brokered talks


BENGHAZI, Libya: Libya’s internationally recognized parliament voted on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) to return to United Nations-brokered talks on the future of the crisis-hit country, a week after suspending its participation, a lawmaker said. The motion to resume the negotiations was adopted at the end of a meeting between members of parliament and the UN’s special envoy to Libya, Bernardino Leon, the lawmaker Abu Bakr Beira told Agence France-Presse. The decision to suspend participation in the talks had come days after 40 people were killed in suicide car bombings in the eastern town of Al-Qoba claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group.
