RABAT, August 18 (Itar-Tass) - Libyan Interior Minister Mohammed Khalifa al-Sheikh has resigned due to the disagreements with Prime Minister Ali Zeidan and the government’s interference into the parliament’s and the Interior Ministry’s affairs.
Al-Sheikh, former colonel of Tripoli Police, took the position of interior minister in May 2013. After rebels seized the capital in August 2011 he was head of the headquarters to ensure law and order in Tripoli. He was also security adviser to Congress Chairman Mohamed Yousef.
Two years later the Libyan new authorities failed to ensure law and order and security in the country.
Recently law enforcers and foreign missions have been subject to rebels’ attacks.
Servicemen and armoured vehicles were deployed in Tripoli in August to ensure public order.
