"Libya's Presidential Council announced a new government on Tuesday aimed at uniting the country's warring factions, though two of its nine members rejected it in a sign of continuing divisions over its U.N.-backed plan for a political transition. Western powers hope the new government will deliver stability to Libya and tackle a growing threat from Islamic State militants, but critics say the agreement was forced through too quickly and does not evenly represent the country's groups and factions."
