Latest Ali Aujali Items
Libya's ambassador to the U.S., Ali Aujali, has resigned. A high-level source in Tripoli confirmed Mr. Aujali’s resignation to The Washington Times on Monday evening, but did not give a reason for his departure. Mr. Aujali was unavailable for comment.
The man nominated to serve as Libya’s foreign minister has declined to take the job, despite being cleared by a panel that investigated his links to late dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
To most Libyans, J. Christopher Stevens was one of them. The U.S. ambassador had stood by them, as they rose up and toppled Moammar Gadhafi's regime last year. What they cherished most was his unwavering optimism about their future.
The ambassador who long represented Moammar Gadhafi and strongly defended the Libyan dictator reopened the Libyan Embassy this week as the envoy of the rebel provisional government, proclaiming a new democratic Libya.
A Western coalition Sunday kept up a barrage of airstrikes on Libya, while the head of the Arab League condemned the military action and called an emergency meeting to reconsider Arab support for the mission.
Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi vowed Tuesday to "die a martyr" rather than flee his embattled country, as tens of thousands of foreigners rushed across the borders to Tunisia or Egypt or caught emergency flights to Europe.
