Libya's Government of National Accordon Wednesday denied resignation and handing over power to the rival east-based government, confirming that its official Twitter account has been hacked.

"The Twitter page of the Government of National Accord (GNA) has been hacked and this false statement has been published," the UN-backed government said in a statement.

The Dubai-based Al Arabiya TV had said that the GNA announced the resignation of the Presidential Council in Tripoli.

The GNA has been engaged in a deadly armed conflict since early April in and around the capital Tripoli against the east-based Libyan National army, which is trying to take over the city.
