The leader of the government in Tripoli, Omar al-Hassi, was sacked Tuesday by the parliament in the Libyan capital, which is under the control of an Islamist-backed militia, a lawmaker said.

"The head of the government was dismissed by the parliament in a vote on Tuesday that was backed by the rest of the ministers," the lawmaker told AFP.

Libya has had two governments and parliaments since Tripoli was seized in August 2014 by the Fajr Libya militia coalition and the internationally recognised government fled to the country's far east.
