Protesters storm Libyan congress as votes on gov't
Dozens of protesters stormed Libya's national congress on Tuesday as it voted on a proposed government, saying they were unhappy with some of the ministers, a Reuters witness said.
Fewer than 100 people, including civilians and former rebel fighters, charged into the hall as the congress voted on Prime Minister Ali Zeidan's proposed cabinet line-up, which he had named earlier on Tuesday.
Members of the congress were negotiating with the protesters to leave the room, a Reuters reporter at the scene said. The session, aired on Libyan television, was briefly cut off but when it resumed protesters could still be seen in the hall
