Libyan deputy PM resigns citing 'policy failure'
TRIPOLI, Libya — Libya's deputy prime minister has resigned citing failed government policies and the deterioration of security following a string of assassinations, according to officials and his Facebook page.
The prime minister's office said Sunday it had accepted the resignation of Deputy Prime Minister Awad al-Barassi. It had no further comment.
Al-Barassi announced the resignation late Saturday on his official Facebook page, saying that a "fearful number of assassinations of honorable people" stemmed from what he said was government policy failure.
