Cruise Ship Hired as 'Floating Hotel for MPs'

BBC News reports that the Libyan government appears to have hired a cruise ship in the port of Tobruk to serve as a "floating hotel" for politicians and journalists.

The boat was hired as a temporary residence for members of the newly-formed House of Representatives (HoR), but according to Libya Herald the politicians have refused to move in.

Faraj Najem, head of the Parliamentary Settlement Committee, is reported as saying:

"The floating hotel is a special ship which will host the parliament's escorts and journalists ...

"The deputies will stay at the Dar Essalam hotel in Tobruk, and not on the ship."

adding that the ship was hired because Benghazi doesn't have enough hotels rooms.
