Defying the turmoil roiling their nation Libyans vote in parliament elections, the third nationwide balloting since the toppling of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi, at a polling station in Benghazi, Libya, Wednesday, June 25, 2014. The vote is a key step in transition for the oil-rich Libya, embroiled in deep political chaos and instability mainly because of the absence of a strong military and police force. Heavily armed militias, born out of the rebel groups that toppled Gadhafi, now are the main power in the country. (AP Photo/Mohammed el-Shaiky)
