Libya's interim PM resigns, urges unity
Misrata - Libya's interim prime minister said he was resigning on Saturday and urged new leaders to seize a "very limited opportunity" and resolve rivalries now surfacing after Muammar Gaddafi's death.
With regional differences emerging about what to do with Gaddafi's still unburied body, the formal end to the war and the carve-up of power, Libya's outgoing premier said the coming days posed a crucial test of resolve for the new men in power.
Mahmoud Jibril confirmed he would step down on Saturday after seven months as prime minister of the Western-backed rebel government.
But in a parting shot at an international business forum in Jordan, he warned Libyans to avoid in-fighting if Libyans were to keep to a plan to hold their first free election next year.
Leaders required "resolve", he said, "in the next few days".
