Lybia in the hands of exiles


By 115 votes to 157, the Libyan National Assembly passed on Sunday, May 5, 2013, a law banning anyone who held a public position since 1969 from working for the new administration.

Two thirds of the Libyan people have fled the country since the NATO operation that overthrew Muammar el-Qaddafi.
