U.S. officials said on Saturday that members of a Libyan militia have taken over an abandoned annex of the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, but have not broken into the main compound where the United States evacuated all of its staff last month. A YouTube video showed the breach of the diplomatic facility by what was believed to be a militia group–mostly from the northwestern city of Misrata. Libya has been rocked by the worst factional violence since the 2011 fall of Muammar Gaddafi. A Misrata-led alliance, part of it which is Islamist-leaning, now controls the capital.
