One of two boycotting members of the leadership of Libya's U.N.-backed government said on Thursday he would resume his role, potentially helping to overcome resistance to its rule and win support for a team of ministers. The government's nine-member Presidential Council has struggled to bridge Libya's geographical divides and factional rivalries as it tries to steer the country into a political transition.

The state-run Anadolu news agency blamed the attack on the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a militant group which has waged a three-decade insurgency for Kurdish autonomy and has been involved in almost daily clashes with security forces since a ceasefire collapsed more than a year ago.
