Tripoli — Libya's national congress on Tuesday delayed the vote on the cabinet line-up submitted by Prime Minister Ali Zaidan after some protesters stormed the legislature, according to the state TV.

Fewer than 100 people, made up of civilians and former rebel fighters, charged into the meeting hall of the General National Congress as it voted on Prime Minister Ali Zeidan's cabinet line-up, which was drawn from both liberal and Islamist parties.
