Libya: Suicide attack on electoral commission kills 14

(Tripoli) At least 14 people were killed and seven wounded when terrorists stormed the headquarters of Libya's electoral commission in downtown Tripoli, spraying office workers with gunfire before two of the attackers blew themselves up on Wednesday.

The attack appears designed to set back and derail plans for Libya to hold elections and end its protracted civil war  and transpired just two days after the Libya Quartet, a gathering of the League of Arab States, Africa Union, European Union and United Nations envoys met in Cairo to declare Libya was ready for elections. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.

Funny how those who claim to have the support of the people are more than happy to kill in which to deny them to vote who they actually want to run the country.
