HeadlineAug 23, 2016

In Libya, the Western-backed government suffered a no-confidence vote Monday. Members of the Libyan House of Representatives voted 61 to 1 against the U.N.-backed Government of National Accord, known as the GNA. Thirty-nine Parliament members abstained from the vote. Libya currently has three competing governments that claim legitimacy. Earlier this month, the Pentagon began carrying out airstrikes in Libya against ISIS in what it says will be an ongoing campaign.
