TRIPOLI: Army chief General Yusef al-Mangoush, criticised for delays in forming a national army, resigned on Sunday, a day after clashes killed 31 people in Benghazi, members of Libya’s highest political authority said.

“The chief of staff presented his resignation that was accepted by the congress,” General National Congress member Abdullah al-Gmati said, adding that the body had already been preparing to suspend him.
