Gunmen Try to Kill Libya's Recognized Prime Minister

A spokesman for Libya's internationally recognized government says gunmen tried to assassinate the prime minister on his way to the airport in the eastern city of Tobruk.
According to the spokesperson, the Prime Minister's motorcade was attacked on Tuesday, leaving one of his guards lightly wounded, but nobody dead.
Before the attack, armed men tried to storm a building where Tobruk government's House of Representatives were in session. The protesters fired shots in the air and demanded that the prime minister resign. The session was postponed until next week.
Libya's elected parliament was forced to relocate to the far-eastern city of Tobruk after Islamist-allied militias took over the country's capital, Tripoli. Fighting is still underway in much of the country.
