Folkets hall – betegnelsen på nasjonalforsamlingen i det sosialistiske Libya – står i brann, melder Reuters.

A government building in the Libyan capital is on fire, a Reuters reporter said on Monday.

«I can see the People’s Hall is on fire, there are firefighters there trying to put it out,» the reporter said.

The building is where the General People’s Congress, or parliament, meets when it is in session in Tripoli.
