Libya Questions U.S. Ambassador

Libyan officials met with U.S. ambassadors to talk about the capture of suspected Al Qaeda member Abu Anas al Libi by U.S. Marines over the weekend. 200 U.S. Marines headed to an Italian naval base ready to provide support should the American embassy in Libya be overrun by angry crowds after Libi’s capture. The meeting was described as cordial as Libya requested that Libi be returned to Libya and demanded access to him in the meantime. Libi is accused of being a part of the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania injuring about 4000 people. He was indicted in New York and is being held in the Southern District. He is being tried on American soil as a terrorist though not expected to have the same press level as the 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammad.
