Heavy gunfire has been heard outside the Libyan interim parliament in the capital Tripoli.
MPs fled the building after gunmen attacked it. There are reports that supporters of a rogue officer, Khalifa Haftar, carried out the assault.
His forces launched a major air-and-ground attack on Benghazi in the east on Friday, prompting the government to declare a no-fly-zone there.
Authorities are struggling to contain militias that control parts of Libya.
