Libya government says captures former Gaddafi spokesman

Share

Libyan militias captured Muammar Gaddafi’s former spokesman on Saturday, exactly a year after the dictator’s death, while leader Mohammed Magarief said some areas of the country still needed to be fully "liberated".

While Libya was declared "liberated" a few days after Gaddafi’s capture and its new rulers have led the nation to elections, they have struggled to impose their authority on a country awash with weapons.

Moussa Ibrahim, who was the mouthpiece of the Gaddafi regime during last year’s war, was caught in the town of Tarhouna, 70 km (40 miles) south of Tripoli.
