Libyan PM Abdullah Al-Thinni arrived as a suicide bombing killed at least one person and wounded 20 in the town of Tobruk, close to the Egyptian border.

Libya’s internationally-recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni, facing a power struggle with Islamists, arrived in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, official media reported.

Al-Thinni landed in the capital Riyadh where he “was received by Dr. Musaed al-Aiban, minister of state and member of the cabinet, and a number of senior officials,” the Saudi Press Agency reported without further explanation.

Al-Thinni arrived as a suicide bombing killed at least one person and wounded 20 in the town of Tobruk, close to the Egyptian border.

Tobruk is home to Libya’s internationally-recognized parliament and was until recently the base for Al-Thinni’s government, which has since moved to a nearby town.

Parliament and the government took refuge in the remote east when Islamist-backed militias seized the capital Tripoli in August.

The supreme court last week annulled the legislature but its anti-Islamist majority refused to accept the judgment.

Al-Thinni ‘s government has accused Qatar and Sudan of supplying weapons to its Islamist opponents.

Both those nations denied the accusation.
