TRIPOLI, March 11 (Reuters) - Libya's state prosecutor said on Tuesday he had banned ousted Prime Minister Ali Zeidan from travelling abroad while he is under investigation.

Zeidan, who earlier in the day lost a confidence vote in parliament, will be investigated for alleged financial corruption and other irregularities, Abdel-Qader Radwan told Reuters and Libya's al-Ahrar television. (Reporting by Feras Bosalum; Writing by Ulf Laessing; Editing by Mark Heinrich)
