Dozens of gunmen kept Libya’s foreign ministry under siege for a second straight day on Monday demanding it sack officials from the previous regime of Moamer Kadhafi.

Around 30 vehicles, some mounted with anti-aircraft guns, and armed men have encircled the ministry since Sunday.

On Monday, placards calling for the adoption of a law aimed at political expulsions of Kadhafi-era officials hung on the gate of the ministry building.

“The ministry is closed,” Aymen Mohamed Aboudeina, part of a group of protesters, told AFP, adding that “talks will be initiated in the coming hours with ministries concerned”.
