Libya's elected parliament halted a session attended by Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni on Tuesday after protesters set fire to a car outside its base in the eastern city of Tobruk, lawmakers said. It was not immediately clear what the protesters were demanding, but Thinni has faced increasing criticism in the east over the country's political chaos since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, and economic hardships including salary delays and power cuts. The oil producer's new rulers had originally planned to set up a parliament in the eastern city of Benghazi, but after that turned into a battleground between the government and Islamist fighters, moved the assembly in August to the remote coastal city of Tobruk near the Egyptian border.
