Libyan Embassy Reopened in U.S.

Supporters gather outside of the reopening of the Libyan embassy in Washington DC.

Supporters of the Libyan Transitional National Council (TNC) convened on the sidewalk outside the Watergate complex to celebrate the formal reopening of the Libyan embassy in Washington, DC, which is now officially under the TNC’s control.

The new charge d’affaires Ali Aujali presided over the event, giving a speech to the assembled crowd, unlocking the doors, and inviting guests inside for an impromptu press conference. Aujali was quite familiar with the surroundings. He served Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi as the Libyan regime’s top representative in Washington for years before defecting to the rebel side in February.
