Libya's interim Prime Minister Abdullah Al Thinni has resigned, making the already dire situation in the post-Gaddafi Libya even worse.

Thinni’s resignation comes less than a week after he was asked by the country's parliament to form a new cabinet.

His predecessor, Ali Zeidan, was forced out by parliament last month for being unable to put an end to rising lawlessness.

The latest crisis is widely seen as a sign of the turmoil the Libyan authorities have been in since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi three years ago.

Since then, Libya's fledgling security forces have failed to disarm and demobilise many of the militias who helped take down Gaddafi's army and who now have more say in the country's affairs.

Just, where is Libya heading? And what does it take to end the continuing crisis there?
