Libya's parliament rejects prime minister's cabinet, fighting continues

This week Libya’s parliament rejected the new cabinet selected by Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni. His government has been unable to gain full control over the country. Last month a militia group took over the capital and forced the government to leave Tripoli. They’ve been trying to govern from the city of Torbuk, further east. We’ll take a look at what’s happened in Libya since the fall of Qaddafi with Khaled M, a Libyan American recording artist who has been working to try to re-develop the country and its institutions.
