Libyan Parliament building set on fire. In order to protest the deteriorating living circumstances and the political impasse, demonstrators stormed the parliament building in Tobruk, in eastern Libya.
On Friday, media sites displayed pictures of dense columns of black smoke emanating from the parliament building’s perimeter as irate teenage protestors torched tyres. Several television programs reported that protesters had entered the parliament building and committed acts of damage.
It was stated that earlier on Friday, protests also happened in other cities. Several hundred people gathered in the main plaza of Tripoli, the nation’s capital, in the west of the country, to protest against armed militias and demand a better energy supply and cheaper bread costs.
