Libya's self-declared National Salvation government is stepping down, a statement posted by the justice ministry said on Tuesday, less than a week after the arrival in Tripoli of a UN-backed national unity government.

"We inform you that we are stopping our work as an executive power, as the presidency, members of parliament and ministers of the government," the statement said.

It carried the stamp of the government but did not bear the names or signatures of ministers. It came after a number of ministers met to prepare a peaceful handover of power, a justice ministry official said. The UN-brokered unity government has been operating from a naval base as it seeks to establish its authority over a country torn by factional conflict.
