Libya's recognized parliament rejects UN proposal for unity gov't

RABAT - Libya's internationally recognized parliament decided on Monday to reject a United Nations proposal for a unity government, lawmakers said, in a blow to efforts to end a political crisis.
However, the parliament, known as the House of Representatives and baed in eastern Libya, said it would continue to take part in UN-backed peace talks with its rivals, based in the capital, Tripoli.
The United Nations proposed a national unity government to the warring factions this month, suggesting six candidates for key posts.
