Libya's interim leadership on Monday elected an electrical engineering professor who has taught in the United States as the country's new prime minister.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton promised Libya's fledgling government more U.S. support during an unannounced visit to Tripoli on Tuesday, as toppled dictator Moammar Gadhafi remained at large and his forces held out in his hometown of Sirte.
The euphoria that swept Tripoli, Libya, on Sunday appeared to dissipate early Monday, as residents learned that forces loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi still controlled parts of the capital and the longtime Libyan dictator remained at large.
Mustapha Abdel-Jalil, said Monday that parts of Tripoli and the cities of Sirte to the east of Tripoli and Sebha to the south are still under control of pro-Gadhafi forces.
Mr. Abdel-Jalil had earlier said that Seif al-Islam was in rebel custody.
