Libyan defence minister gives oath to become acting PM

TRIPOLI, March 11 (Reuters) - Libyan defence minister Abdallah al-Thinni gave his oath in parliament on Tuesday to become acting prime minister after deputies voted Ali Zeidan out of office amid worsening disorder in the oil-producing North African state.

Parliament will support Thinni and not obstruct his work, its head Nuri Ali Abu Sahmain told the assembly during a session broadcast by state television. (Reporting by Ulf Laessing; Editing by Mark Heinrich)
