*Libyan Lawmakers Select New Interim Prime Minister*
Libyan lawmakers have selected a new interim prime minister, a week after giving a vote of no confidence to their former pick for failing to present an acceptable Cabinet.
Libya's General National Congress on Sunday elected Ali Zidan, a former career diplomat who defected in the 1980s and became an outspoken critic of former leader Moammar Gadhafi. He later became a human rights advocate.
Zidan pledged to begin working quickly in a nation that remains highly polarized after the 2011 civil war that ended Gadhafi's four-decade rule.
Zidan also said Sunday that security will be a priority.
A new Libyan government faces the challenge of trying to disarm and demobilize militias that maintain control over parts of the country following their participation in the revolution.
*Wounded Pakistani Girl Sent to Britain *
Pakistani officials say the 14-year-old schoolgirl Yousafzai who was shot in the head and neck last week in a terrorist attack has been sent to Britain for medical treatment.
Pakistani doctors recommended Malala Yousafzai's transfer to a British facility where she can receive the prolonged care she will need to recover from the physical and psychological effects of the shooting.
The United Arab Emirates provided an air ambulance for Yousafzai's trip abroad.
Yousafzai has been internationally recognized for promoting education for girls and documenting Taliban atrocities in the area near her home in the northwestern Swat Valley. She was shot by Taliban militants on October 9.
