" The GNC was forced to abandon the vote on the two candidates who outstood the total seven candidates in the first round voting."
Tripoli, April 30 - A group of gunmen stormed the Libyan parliament Tuesday afternoon, disrupting the session to elect a new prime minister.

The gunmen dashed into the parliament hall when the interim parliament, General National Congress -, was in a second round to select a new prime minister to substitute ousted Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, Xinhua reported.

Local TV footages showed that the gunmen fired several rounds, leaving some wounded. Some lawmakers were running away from the parliament building.

The GNC was forced to abandon the vote on the two candidates who outstood the total seven candidates in the first round voting.

The gunmen's identity could not be established immediately.
