Libya Islamists Seize Tripoli Airport as Parliament Duel Set




Libya Islamists Seize Tripoli Airport as Parliament Duel SetIslamist fighters in the Fajr Libya, or Libya Dawn, coalition stand guard at the entrance of Tripoli international airport on August 24, 2014.
An alliance of Islamist militias said it wrested control of Tripoli’s international airport from a rival force after weeks of fighting that triggered an exodus of foreigners and threatened to plunge Libya deeper into chaos.[eap_ad_2] 
Libya’s defunct, Islamist-dominated parliament said it would temporarily resume its sessions, the state-run Libya News Agency reported, a move that may set the stage for dueling legislatures amid a leadership vacuum.
The fighting has battered Libya, undercut efforts to revive oil output in the OPEC member and dimmed hopes for a transition to democracy. It has sparked concern the nation, led by a largely toothless central government, will descend into anarchy and emerge as little more than a failed state controlled by militias.
