Libya’s deputy prime minister says he has resigned due to failed government policies and deterioration of security following a string of assassinations.

The prime minister’s office said Sunday it had accepted the resignation of Deputy Prime Minister Awad al-Barassi.

Al-Barassi announced the resignation late Saturday on his official Facebook page, saying that a “fearful number of assassinations of honorable people” stemmed from government policy failure.

The last week of July saw a series of assassinations, including those of a leading Libyan lawyer and activist and a former top official in the country’s newly-formed security force.
