    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, NOVEMBER 6 - With political chaos reigning in Libya after the parliament elected in June was dissolved on Thursday, a date has been set to hold municipal elections. Voters will cast their votes on November 29 in four regions, on December 6 in seven and on December 13 in three others, reported Libyan news agency LANA. A Tuareg militia supporting the Islamist Libya Dawn group reported broke into oil facilities on Wednesday in Sharara (southwestern Libya) belonging to the Akakus Oil company, it was reported on Thursday. The intruders later escaped, say local media. The militants stole about 20 company vehicles as well as computers and documents, Libya Herald quotes the head of the guard staff at the facilities as saying. He added that the attack had taken them by surprise and that thus no clashes had ensued. (ANSAmed).
