The United States says it is concerned about reports of the use of force to seize the offices of Libya’s UN-backed National Accord government in the capital, Tripoli.
A statement by the US State Department issued late Saturday also called on all parties to work together for a “safe, prosperous and free Libya.”
Gunmen seized the offices of the UN-backed government on Friday night, announcing their support for the Islamist-oriented administration that ruled in the Libyan capital before the National Accord government was installed in March.
