ISIS claimed to have seized full control Tuesday of the Libyan city of Sirte from the Libya Dawn militia, including a power plant, according to a U.S. monitor.It said the capture of Sirte came after clashes that erupted at dawn saw the Libya Dawn fighters lose all entrances to the city and the power plant, as well as the Al-Jallit military camp and Al-Qardhabiyah base.Meanwhile, the elected parliament, based in eastern Libya, rejected a United Nations proposal to form a unity government for Libya and withdrew from the talks aimed at ending the crippling power struggle. Libya's official government has been based in the east since a rival faction seized Tripoli in August, setting up a rival administration. It stipulates that the parliament elected last June, most of whose members back the government in Tobruk, should be the legislative authority in the interim.
