TRIPOLI - Libyan defense 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.
