Libyan PM voted out

      Libya's parliament has passed a no-confidence vote against the newly-elected Prime Minister, Mustafa Abu Shagur, dismissing him from his post. Abu Shagur has been forced to stand down after the national congress rejected his second proposed cabinet line-up. His first list of 29 ministers was rejected for not being diverse enough. His second one, a shorter list submitted on Sunday, was also rejected by lawmakers, who voted 125 to 44 in favour of removing him. Lawmakers now have three to four weeks to elect a new premier. Abu Shagur was elected by the assembly last month but he struggled to form a government which satisfied all factions in parliament.
