Members of Libya's U.N.-backed Presidential Council reached Tripoli by ship Wednesday, defying attempts to keep them out of the city and prevent them from installing a unity government.Seven members of the Council including Fayez Seraj, its head and the new government's prime minister, arrived from Tunisia at Tripoli's Abusita naval base amid tight security. A separate self-declared government also based in Tripoli and armed groups that back it had warned the Council and the unity government not to travel to the capital. Tripoli's airspace was closed for several hours Sunday and Monday, a move the Council said was designed to prevent it from reaching Libya.The Council has called for an immediate transfer of power to the unity government, though both the Tripoli and eastern-based governments oppose this.
