Explosions end meeting of UN envoy, Libyan premier

10 November 2014, 08:09

Cairo - A series of nearby explosions prematurely ended a meeting between Libya's prime minister and the United Nations top envoy to the country, though no one was wounded.

Samir Ghattas, spokesperson for the UN mission in Libya, said it was not clear whether the explosions on Sunday were targeting the meeting between UN envoy Bernardino Leon and Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni in the eastern city of Bayda.

Leon, who had planned to travel to other cities on his visit, left immediately after the blasts for the airport.

Leon was in Libya after the country's supreme court declared the new government and parliament unconstitutional on Thursday, causing more chaos in a country already squeezed by warring militias.

Al-Thinni is the prime minister of the internationally recognised government.
