Libyan rebels consider post-war rule
The chief diplomat of Libya’s rebel council will be tasked with forming an interim government, but this cannot be done when much of the country is in the control of Muammar Gaddafi, rebel officials said.
Al Jazeera television said yesterday that Mahmoud Jebril was being appointed head of a new interim government. But rebel spokesman Hafiz Ghoga said such a step could only be taken when the country was united under rebel control.
Jebril, a strategy expert who spent much of his career abroad, is already head of a crisis committee managing military matters and insurgent efforts to gain international recognition.
