Libyan interior minister quitsAugust 26th, 2012 - 11:42 pm ICT by IANS
Tripoli, Aug 26 (IANS) Libyan Interior Minister Fawzi Abdelali resigned Sunday after being attacked for the performance of the security forces during a surge of violence, Al-Jazeera TV reported.
The country’s security forces were criticised for double car bombings that killed two people on the day Muslims celebrated the feast of Eid-ul-Fitr a week ago in Tripoli and attacks on several Muslim shrines in the past few days, Xinhua reported.
The criticism has come mainly from the General National Congress, which Sunday accused the interior ministry’s High Security Committee of being lax.
Dozens of protesters responded to calls on Internet social networks and took to the streets of the capital Sunday to denounce the destruction of the mausoleums.
