Libya, currently ranked 19th in the world after their showing at the Grand Prix in Brazil, will be up against the likes of Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina in a bid to lift the cup.

Tunisia’s delegate said after the draw: “It’s a very good draw for Tunisia for the first round but in the second round if we qualify we are going to be facing Libya, which is going to be very tough for us”. When asked who he thought would win the competition he gave a one word answer, “Libya”. [Borofutsal] More

Thursday, 28 October, 2010: PARIS — Ancient fossilized teeth of small anthropoid monkeys discovered in Libya suggest our earliest ancestors may have migrated from Asia to Africa, research published Wednesday showed. The origin of anthropoids -- primates including monkeys, apes and humans -- has long been a source of hot debate among palaeontologists. Experts have long argued anthropoids first appeared in Africa -- but recent studies suggest an earlier Asian origin, dating 55 million years ago. Now new fossils, dating 38 to 39 million years ago and discovered in Dur At-Talah in central Libya, further complicate the debate. They reveal the existence of three types of African anthropoids -- the oldest discovered on the continent to date, according to the study published in the British journal Nature. [AFP] More

Thursday, 28 October, 2010: Foreign Minister Tonio Borg is on his way to Tripoli where he will have talks with his Libyan counterpart Mousa Kousa.

Thursday, 28 October, 2010: Malta was exerting diplomatic pressure on Italy and Libya to discuss its proposal to negotiate a tri-partite joint oil exploration agreement in an area in the east of the Mediterranean seas being contested by the three countries. Foreign Minister Tonio Borg told Parliament yesterday that last year he had announced that he had taken the initiative and made a concrete joint exploration proposal to both the Italian and the Libyan governments. Negotiations were still ongoing but Malta was using its pressure to get the other governments to come to the negotiating table to discuss this proposal. Malta was in favour of joint exploration because this avoided reference to the International Court of Justice and, without prejudice to any presumed rights, the countries could arrive at an amicable way to exploit resources and leave the theoretical issue of sovereignty unprejudiced.

"This is a double-standard decision and action," he underlined. Referring to the UN Security Council's resolutions against Iran's peaceful nuclear activities, Mojber reiterated, "Security Council is not a good name for the council and its name should be changed into the War Council."

Tuesday, 26 October, 2010: When Libyan leader Col. Muammar Qaddafi travels around the world, he usually has a cadre of female bodyguards. But that’s not the only visible presence that women have in Libya. A little known fact is that Qaddafi opened up society to women when he took power 41 years ago.

Sunday, 24 October, 2010: In a hard-hitting documentary, Sky News Foreign Affairs correspondent Lisa Holland follows British mothers as they attempt to be reunited with their abducted children in Libya. The mothers all met and married Libyan men in Britain; however, they never imagined that their husbands would take their children back to their home country. As Libya is not signed up to The Hague Convention, there are no international protocols in place, and it remains virtually impossible for them to get their children back. Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi has granted Sky News unprecedented access to the Muslim country in North Africa. There, mothers and grandparents hope to be reunited with their children in the Libyan capital of Tripoli, thanks to a scheme organised by charity Children and Families Across Borders (CFAB). They have just two weeks to make up for lost time. [Sky News] More

Geneva canton authorities said that, with the federal authorities, they had "ordered the modification of a poster of the Geneva Citizens' Movement (MCG)" that was an "outrage to foreign states." "The poster, dedicated to the initiative for the expulsion of foreign criminals, hits out directly at the Libyan head of state," it added in a statement. The far-right party's poster is part of a campaign ahead of a nationwide referendum on whether foreign criminals who have committed certain crimes should be stripped of their right to remain in Switzerland and deported to their home countries.

Forbes: Is Libya open for business to American companies? Ambassador Gene Cretz: It is. This is my eighth trip back to the U.S. from Libya in the past 20 months because the information is just not getting out. The image of Libya in the U.S. is just laden with the past. All Americans know is of the Pan Am flight that was blown up and that there’s a guy who has prostrate cancer but he just won’t die. But this is the second year in the process of liberalization. That’s not to say we forget the past. We don’t forget or forgive. But this is a country worthy of maintaining a relationship with. [Forbes] More

Wednesday, 20 October, 2010: Tripoli -- Libya is a familiar place for Turks, as our ancestors ruled these lands for around 400 years. Its capital city, Tripoli, hosts a number of Ottoman works and relics and is full of mosques, minarets, hans and public baths. We are in the Green Square, or Saha al-Khadhra, which is the biggest and most famous square in the city. Palm trees give it a unique landscape. As is the case with the rest of the country, images of Libya’s leader, Muammar Qaddafi, hang from walls and buildings, literally surrounding the Green Square. Next to it is Assaraya al-Hamra, a palace from where Ottoman governors ruled Libya for several centuries. Libyans still love Turkey and the Turkish people even after so many years. We visit the palace, which is named al-Hamra, like the one in Granada, Spain. The interior of the palace is rather simple, but the place is still magnificent. The walls facing the courtyard are decorated with ceramic tiles. [Today's Zaman] More
Wednesday, 20 October, 2010: In recent years Libya has transformed itself from a pariah state into a full member of the international community - yet campaign groups continue to describe the country's human rights record as "dire". Only a few years ago Libya was under UN, European Union and US sanctions but it is now an active player in international affairs and in May this year was elected to the UN Human Rights Council. The British government has strengthened ties in matters of security, migration and trade. And last year trade between the two countries was worth a total of STG1.5 billion ($A2.42 billion).

Tuesday, 19 October, 2010: When French President Nicholas Sarkozy hosts his Russian and German counterparts for talks on European security today, Europe’s second-biggest energy partner with Moscow won’t be there. Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi wasn’t invited. A guest at Vladimir Putin’s private birthday bash this month, the Italian prime minister has been a pioneer among European Union leaders in forging ties with energy-rich Russia, Central Asia and Libya. While his personal diplomacy is paying dividends for companies such as Eni SpA, it’s rankled some allies while failing to win Italy a place at the table with France and Germany, the traditional EU power brokers.

Tuesday, 19 October, 2010: A businessman from west London has described how he was snatched off the street in Libya and held captive for almost six months. Henry Djaba, 46, from Bayswater, was imprisoned in a windowless 6ft by 4ft cell where his captors threatened to hang him upside down and beat him to death. During the ordeal he was assaulted, deprived of sleep, forced to take drugs, and made to think he was set to "permanently disappear". When human rights charities discovered Mr Djaba was being held without charge, or access to either lawyers or British embassy staff, they too feared for his life. The security services in Libya have a reputation for extra-judicial kidnappings, with hundreds of victims disappearing each year. [UK Press] More

Saturday, 16 October, 2010: Whether springing from a moment of whimsy triggered by a dictator's vanity or a Bedouin’s obsession with water, Muammer Gaddafi and his investment funds have nonetheless brought some hope to a modest Italian town at the foot of the Apennines. Chance led the Libyan leader to Antrodoco in July last year, when his motorcade chose to avoid the long tunnels on the modern highway that link Rome with the quake-stricken town of L’Aquila hosting the summit of the G8 leading economies. Taking instead Salaria, the ancient imperial artery, Mr Gaddafi stopped off in Antrodoco – appropriately a mansio, or Roman resting place, equivalent to the Middle Eastern caravanserai. He was warmly greeted by locals who took group photos below pine-forested mountains by a river ripping through gorges. [Financial Times] More
Saturday, 16 October, 2010: There is a direct link between the Libyan HIV case and the release of a Libyan jailed for the bombing of a plane above the Scottish village of Lockerbie, claims Dr Ashraf El-Hojouj. The Palestinian-Bulgarian doctor was held in custody in Libya for several years with five Bulgarian nurses accused of infecting hundreds of Libyan children with the HIV virus. The doctor has made the revelations in his book Gaddafi’s scapegoat. Dr El-Hojouj says the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had him and the Bulgarian nurses arrested so that he could use them later in a deal to release the Libyan Abdel Basset al-Megrahi. Tripoli reluctantly extradited al-Megrahi to stand trial for the bombing of a US plane above Lockerbie in 1988. [RNW] More
Saturday, 16 October, 2010: The Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee wants the President of Libya, Col. Muammar Ghadafi and his governmnet to pay Uganda two billion shillings.

The Auditor General's report ending 2008 indicates that the President of Libya, Col. Muammar Ghadaffi requested the government of Uganda to extend the Afro Arab Youth Summit held in March 2007 by four days and promised to incur the extra cost. The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Uganda for gender, Christine Guwatudde has told MPs that efforts to recover the funds from Libya have been futile. The MPs have now directed Gadaffi to pay Uganda the money with interests. [Ugpulse] More

Friday, 15 October, 2010: OPEC will likely hold its official production quota steady at an official meeting in Vienna this week, amid the uncertain oil market outlook, the head of Libya's National Oil Company said here on Tuesday.

We don't know if they will be ten dollars up or down in one month."

Overcoming the complex new visa requirements and concerns surrounding arrival procedures, the Travcoa group was expedited through Libyan immigration without delay.

Wednesday, 13 October, 2010: (Dow Jones) - BP PLC (BP) expects its deepwater drilling activities in Libya to begin by November, after initially planning to begin operation in October, Libya's top oil official told Dow Jones Newswires on the sidelines of the Oil & Money Conference in London. Shokri Ghanem, chairman of Libya's National Oil Corp., said the drilling activities were delayed as BP is now taking extra care in planning operations following the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Ghanem told Dow Jones Newswires in August he expected BP to start drilling in Libya's Gulf of Sirte by October at the latest. A BP spokesman told Dow Jones Newswires the company had always planned to start drilling operations in Libya by the end of the year and its plans remain unchanged. He declined to comment on whether precaution over safety issues had affected the schedule for drilling. [Wall Street Journal] More
Wednesday, 13 October, 2010: OPEC will likely hold its official production quota steady at an official meeting in Vienna this week, amid the uncertain oil market outlook, the head of Libya's National Oil Company said here on Tuesday. "I think we are not going to see a change (for the OPEC meeting)," Shukri Ghanem said on the sidelines of the Oil & Money annual conference in central London. "I think we'll wait for what is going on, and we'll sit again in March and see." He added: "There is a lot of uncertainty in the market, and the prices are quite volatile. We don't know if they will be ten dollars up or down in one month." OPEC, which pumps about 40 percent of the world's crude oil, has had an official daily production level of 24.84 million barrels since January 2009. [AFP] More

Tuesday, 12 October, 2010: Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has apologized to African leaders on behalf of Arab nations for their involvement in the African slave trade. "I regret the behavior of the Arabs… They brought African children to North Africa, they made them slaves, they sold them like animals, and they took them as slaves and traded them in a shameful way. I regret and I am ashamed when we remember these practices. I apologize for this," Gaddafi said on Sunday at the Second Afro-Arab summit in Sirte, Libya, Reuters reported. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, and a number of other African heads of state attended the summit. Gaddafi also warned leaders about an increasing threat of annexation and division in Africa in the event that the Sudanese decide to split the country into two states. [Press TV] More
Tuesday, 12 October, 2010: LUSAKA (Reuters) - Libya's LAP Green Networks will lay a fibre optic cable across Zambia in the next two years as part of its 600 billion kwacha investment to upgrade the network of its Zambian unit, an executive said on Monday. LAP Green in June bought a 75 percent stake in Zamtel, the southern African nation's only fixed-line operator, for $257 million. Zamtel's chief commercial officer, Amon Jere, told Reuters in an interview the company's current satellite technology had limited its capacity for connectivity and speed. "In the next two years we should have the whole country on fibre optic," Jere said. [Reuters] More
Tuesday, 12 October, 2010: Over the previous week, there was a lot of talk about the .ly domain name, which is popular with URL shorteners. After one such service, vb.ly, got its domain registration removed, many were wondering what it meant for others, especially bit.ly, the largest such service. Now NIC.ly, the registry for the .ly ccTLD used by Libya, has responded officially and has clarified the situation claiming that this was an one-off thing and that it removed the domain because of the 'adult'-oriented nature of the shortening service. "vb.ly had a policy different than the other URL shorteners, not using filters and encouraging the use of this service for creating links to adult sites and other 'NSFW' links," NIC.ly stated. "This use was deemed as unacceptable by our local internet community, regardless of whether or not the site hosts adult material or redirects traffic to 3rd party sites," it explained.

Tuesday, 12 October, 2010: Harare, Zimbabwe - When Pakistan's Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) collapsed in the 1990s, its subsidiary in Zimbabwe zoomed to the cliff, widely expected to similarly plunge. But the government, anxious to avoid a systematic contagion in the local financial sector, quickly intervened and took over the subsidiary, and renamed it the Commercial Bank of Zimbabwe (CBZ). However, the takeover was largely in name only, with very little cash injection to stabilise the troubled bank, at the time ranked Zimbabwe's smallest commercial bank with fewer than ten branches countrywide. The government quickly called in other investors to come on board, in addition to changing the bank's management, to stabilise CBZ and ensure its troubles did not spread to the entire financial sector.

Tuesday, 12 October, 2010: Libya's two state carriers, Afriqiyah Airways and Libyan Airlines are expected to be merged next month, following government approval. Analysts are questioning whether the Afriqiyah brand is retained for long haul routes after the merger.

At the present time both carriers have Airbus aircraft on order. [Arabian Aerospace] More
Tuesday, 12 October, 2010: Fishermen deported two days ago from Libya say they were beaten and mistreated by Libyan authorities. The fishermen, who were detained in Libya for nine months, have returned to their homes in Borg Megheizel village in Kafr al-Sheikh. Sami Ibrahim, one of the fishermen, said that in February he was on board a boat with 16 other fishermen on their regular fishing route when the boat drifted into Libyan waters and around 200 Libyans starting firing in their direction. The fishermen were arrested and detained for nine months, during which time they were mistreated, beaten and humiliated, he said. Ibrahim added that they had to buy food at their own expense and were only released after Kafr al-Sheikh Governor Ahmed Zaki Abdeen paid a LE5000 fine for each of the fishermen. If the fine had not been paid, the fishermen would have remained in custody for another six months, according to Ibrahim. [Almasry Alyoum] More

Monday, 11 October, 2010: SIRTE, Libya — Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi warned on Sunday ahead of a vote on possible independence for south Sudan that a partition of the country would be a "contagious disease" that could spread to other African states. Kadhafi was speaking at a one-day Arab-African summit that wrapped up its work by establishing a strategic partnership between Arab and African states in the areas of energy, environment, water resources, agriculture and food security. Kadhafi told the opening of the summit in the Libyan coastal city of Sirte that "what is happening in Sudan could become a contagious disease that affects the whole of Africa. "We must recognise that this event is dangerous," he said of the planned January 9 referendum on southern Sudan independence which could see Africa's largest country split in two. [AFP] More
Monday, 11 October, 2010: LIBYA will soon top the foreign investors list in Uganda, its ambassador pointed out last week. “Libya now ranks second among countries with the most investment in Uganda. We are soon jumping into the first position and will invest heavily in Uganda towards this end,” Abdalla Bujeldain said at the celebrations to mark the 41st anniversary of the Libyan Revolution in Kampala. Listed as second by Uganda Investment Authority, after the UK and ahead of Kenya, in the list of Top Ten Sources of Foreign Direct Investment by value of Investment since 1991, Libya has to date invested over $375m in eight companies, including uganda telecom, National Housing Corporation, Soluble Coffee Plant, Tropical Bank, Lake Victoria Hotel and Tamoil East Africa. Tamoil has already won a $100m deal to construct an oil pipeline from Eldoret in Kenya to Kampala. Bujeldain said Libya was eyeing all the lucrative sectors from agriculture and oil.

Monday, 11 October, 2010: In his October 9, 2010 speech at the Libya summit, PA President Mahmoud 'Abbas stressed his commitment to the option of peace, and demanded a complete halt to the construction in the settlements and a public Israeli recognition of the two-state solution, in order to revitalize the peace process. He warned of the danger faced by Jerusalem and by the Muslim and Christian holy places as a result of Israel's actions, which include Judaization and ethnic cleansing, the seizing of land, destruction of homes, and construction of housing units, the sabotaging of the Al-Aqsa mosque, and the attempt to isolate Jerusalem from the West Bank – all aimed at establishing facts on the ground prior to negotiations and at destroying the peace process.

General Assembly to condemn Israel's activity in the city... [Memri] More
Monday, 11 October, 2010: Zambia today lost 1-0 to Libya in an Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying game played in that country. After holding Mozambique to a goalless draw in an away fixture in the first round, Libya were hoping to get their first win of the campaign at home in Tripoli and they did just that. Chipolopolo had three points before this game thanks to their win against the Comoros Islands at home. A goal from Ahmed Saad Osman in the first half now puts Zambia under pressure as they go down to second from last following Mozambique's 1-0 victory over Comoros. The Chipolopolo boys tried to pull one back and equalise, but it was not Zambia's day. The group C tally now puts Libya and Mozambique on top with four points each while Zambia is on top of bottom placed Comoros with three points. Zambia's next game will be against Mozambique in March 2011. [Post Zambia] More
Monday, 11 October, 2010: To anyone in Britain who still thinks of her Dad as a tyrant, IRA quartermaster extraordinaire, and all-round Mad Dog of the Middle East, Aisha Gaddafi would like to extend a cordial invite. "Come to Libya, you are all most welcome," she says, when asked about her father's unique talent for planting thorns in the side of successive British governments. "I know what is said in Britain about my father, and most of it is just following a political agenda. So I would give the British people this invite: find out the real facts by coming and meeting us Libyans in person." First though, meet Aisha herself, the only girl among the eight children that Gaddafi has fathered in between his other duties as Brotherly Leader, self-appointed Saviour of Africa and Guide of the Revolution. Dubbed "The Claudia Schiffer of North Africa" in the Arab press for her striking good looks, the 33-year-old is arguably the most photogenic of Libya's First Family, yet she is still very much a chip off the old block.

Sunday, 10 October, 2010: Arab League members decided Friday to give the Obama administration one more month to get faltering Mideast peace talks back on track, but they also said they support a Palestinian threat to quit direct talks unless Israel reverses itself on resuming West Bank settlement construction. The Arab League decision, announced at a meeting in Libya, gives U.S. negotiators more time to resolve the current standoff and solicit support for their proposal to renew Israel's partial construction moratorium, which expired Sept. 26. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who previously said he would make a final decision on whether to quit talks after consulting Arab leaders, has signaled in recent days that he would accept the U.S. proposal to renew the settlement moratorium for two to three months.

Sunday, 10 October, 2010: Over the years Libya has been notorious for many things, including its links to the Lockerbie bombing and the often bizarre activities of its leader, Muammar Gaddafi. Now, those have spilled over onto the internet, where western companies which have been buying domain names with the trendy suffix ".ly", owned by Libya, have abruptly begun to wonder whether they have made a wise decision in basing their business around it. That follows the abrupt enforced shutdown of vb.ly, a "link shortening" site run by Ben Metcalfe and Violet Blue, after it was declared that the content of the site was "against Sharia law". An image of Violet with bare arms, drinking from a bottle of lager, was emblazoned across the front page of the site when the government-owned Libya Telecom & Technology got in touch earlier this month. "Pornography and adult material aren't allowed under Libyan law, therefore we removed the domain," the letter said. [The Guardian] More

Saturday, 9 October, 2010: (RTTNews) - Relations between Libya and South Korea that had strained over an espionage row three months ago were restored on Friday, as the Libyan diplomatic mission in Seoul was reopened. A South Korean intelligence agent was asked to leave the country in June, accusing him of spying on Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and the country's weapons systems. It also shut down the Economic Cooperation Bureau in Seoul that serves as the North African nation's de-facto embassy, and brought home its officials from the South Korean capital. Both sides agreed to resolve the issue last week at a meeting between Gaddafi and Lee Sang-deuk, a member of the South Korean Parliament. The bureau resumed operations on Friday. [RTT] More

Saturday, 9 October, 2010: KHARTOUM, Oct 07, 2010 (AFP) - Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir will begin a three-day visit to Libya on Friday to attend two summits, the official Suna news agency reported on Thursday. Bashir will travel to Sirte at the head of the Sudanese delegation to the Arab League and Arab-African meetings on Saturday and Sunday, the agency reported. A delegation of visiting United Nations Security Council envoys who will travel to Khartoum on Friday had already said they did not plan to meet Bashir, who is wanted by an international court for alleged genocide.

Saturday, 9 October, 2010: Could Muammar al-Qaddafi shut down your website for violating Libya's religious laws? If your domain name ends in .ly -- it appears so. The Libyan government removed the VB.ly URL-shortening service from the Web for hosting content the country found offensive -- in this case, showing bare arms. Libya is prepared to go after others too, saying that .ly domains shorter than four characters are allowed only for companies or people in Libya. "The domain’s purpose (proclaimed by its registrants themselves) was to serve as a 'sex-friendly URL shortener' mainly for adult uses," explained a statement posted to the website of the Libyan agency that controls the .ly domains. This places VB.ly "by definition in the porn/adult site category," the agency said. [Fox News] More

The company also took options for three more of the CRJ900 NextGen aircraft, which if converted to firm orders would increase the value of the deal to $267.8 million. The jets will be operated by Libyan Airlines, which currently operates three CRJ900 and two CRJ900 NextGen aircraft in a two-class configuration with seven business class and 68 economy seats.

Friday, 8 October, 2010: A decision by Libyan authorities to dramatically increase bread prices for the first time in more than 30 years is stirring anger and debate among regular citizens and intellectuals alike. While bread prices in the socialist country presided over by Moammar Kadafi have always been and -- are still technically -- subsidized by the government, some regard the near 100% raise as yet another sign of Libya's leaning toward capitalism and the free market. "The state is trying to gradually evade its role in subsidizing bread, and the Libyan citizen might end up paying the bill for the increase in wheat and bread prices," financial analyst Ahmed Khamissi says. He added that the price hike is the government's way of covering up corruption, especially the involvement of black market tradors in determining bread prices. [Latimesblogs] More

Thursday, 7 October, 2010: American Chevron and Occidental Petroleum (Oxy) have not renewed oil and gas exploration licenses in Libya. A statement to that effect was circulated by the national oil corporation. Chevron and Oxy did not extend five-year exploration licenses in Libya. The two companies were among the first foreign companies to arrive on the Libyan market in 2005. Official reports say Chevron and Oxy are leaving because neither company has reported any major finds in the past five years. In addition, foreign businesses had to deal with numerous hurdles from Libya’s leadership. And on top of all that, a license extension requires millions of dollars in funds. According to the unofficial version, Chevron and Oxy left Libya over the so-called “Lockerbie case”. [Ruvr] More

Wednesday, 6 October, 2010: BRUSSELS - The European Commission offered Libya up to 50 million euros (70 million dollars) in aid to stop the flow of illegal migrants to Europe and protect refugees, the European Union executive said Tuesday. The funding is far below Libya's appeal for five billion euros to combat illegal migration, an amount Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa reiterated to European officials visiting Libya. "It is my objective to put the protection of fundamental rights of all people involved in migratory and asylum flows at the centre of our efforts in the EU relationship with Libya," EU home affairs commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem said in a statement. Malmstroem and European neighbourhood policy commission Stefan Fuele signed a migration cooperation agenda with Libya on Monday. "The cooperation agenda will enable us also to promote initiatives aimed at better protecting and assisting the rights of migrants and refugees," she said. [AFP] More
Wednesday, 6 October, 2010: Johannesburg - Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe will lead a South African delegation to the Second Afro-Arab Summit in Sirte, Libya, the International Relations Department said on Tuesday. The summit was aimed at enhancing co-operation on the African continent and the Arab world, spokesperson Saul Molobi said in a statement. The summit was expected to replace the declaration and programme of action on Afro-Arab Co-operation adopted at the First Afro-Arab Summit, held in Cairo, Egypt in 1977. “This summit testifies that the African and Arab States are committed to revitalising their political and economic co-operation since their first summit in Cairo more than three decades ago,” he said.

Wednesday, 6 October, 2010: The Turkish Petroleum Overseas Company (TPOC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO), says it has started to see the fruits of the aggressive exploration work it has conducted in Libya since 2000. TPAO is one of several operators taking part in the annual North Africa Oil & Gas Summit in Vienna from 2-4 November this year. OPEC Secretary General H.E. Abdalla S. El-Badri will deliver a keynote address to the top decision makers from Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and Mauritania who will be present at the fifth annual summit which is regarded as the industry's leading initiative to facilitate easy access to the North African oil and gas industry. The general manager of TPOC Libya, Dr. Ahmet Tandircioglu, says "the exploration wells drilled in Area 147/3-4 resulted as new oil discoveries which we plan to put on stream in the earliest time. Production testing operations currently continue and the initial results are promising." [KBC] More

Tuesday, 5 October, 2010: BRUSSELS - Two EU officials are in Tripoli to urge Libya to help stem the flow of illegal migrants from Africa. Stefan Fuele and Cecilia Malmstrom — the EU neighbourhood policy and home affairs commissioners, respectively — also will discuss trade, energy, environment and visa issues during their two-day meeting that began Monday. EU spokesman Michele Cercone said the EU wants Libya to do more to stop the flow of illegal aliens into Europe. Last month, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi asked the EU for €5 billion ($6.9 billion) to boost Libyan border controls. The EU rejected that request, but indicated it is ready to provide some funds for better border monitoring. [Winnipeg Free Press] More
Tuesday, 5 October, 2010: SEOUL - South Korea is holding talks with Libya about upgrading its diplomatic office in Seoul to a formal embassy after resolving a diplomatic row, the South's acting foreign minister said Monday. Vice Foreign Minister Shin Kak-Soo told parliament that "various measures" are under consideration to strengthen relations. "We are in talks with Libya to upgrade its economic cooperation office to an embassy," he said. Shin has served as acting minister since Yu Myung-Hwan quit as foreign minister last month after being accused of nepotism over the ministry's hiring of his daughter. Ties between the two nations soured after Libya expelled a South Korean intelligence agent in June for allegedly trying to collect information on leader Moamer Kadhafi, his family and leading bureaucrats.

Tuesday, 5 October, 2010: MORE daring corporate leaders should capitalise on early-stage growth in the less-explored emerging markets of Vietnam, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Libya and Qatar in the coming year. Dr Thierry Apoteker, chief executive of economics research group T-A-C (Thierry Apoteker Consultant) Financial, said long-term strategies in these markets could give rich returns for corporations. T-A-C estimated Vietnam's economic-and financial-risk level at 51. The Philippines' risk level stood at 37, Sri Lanka's at 52, and Libya's was 33. Emerging markets typically have risk levels between 41 and 60, while countries with risk levels between 20 and 40 are considered safe for corporate investment. [Asia One] More

Monday, 4 October, 2010: Tripoli, Libya - Libya and Syria agreed on Friday in Tripoli to set up a joint enterprise intended to fund the setting up of a cement plant in Syria and revitalize the role of joint ventures. The two countries also decided to propose designs for the launch of joint investment projects with high profitability between themselves and the African continent. The project was agreed in minutes of the coordinating and monitoring commission of the work of the Libyan-Syrian strategic cooperation council signed by the Libyan Secretary General for Planning and Finance, Abdelhafidh Zlitni and Syrian Minister of Finance, Mohamed El Hussein. The two parties also agreed in the minutes to hold the first session of the Libyan-Syrian strategic cooperation council on 8-9 December in Syria, which will be preceded by a preparatory meeting in Libya.

Monday, 4 October, 2010: Sirte, Libya - Libyan leader Mouammar Kadhafi Sunday received the Prime Minister of Sao Tome and Principe, Patrice Emery Trovoada, who is currently visiting Libya. According to an official Libyan source, Kadhafi and Trovoada - during their meeting in Sirte, Central Libya - reviewed preparations for the Afro-Arab summit scheduled for 10 October in Libya and discussed ways and means to boost Afro-Arab cooperation in various fields.

Monday, 4 October, 2010: THE UN Human Rights Council is the mandated UN body responsible for the promotion and protection of international human rights. It was intended to improve on its discredited predecessor, the UN Human Rights Commission, which former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan critiqued for its "politicised" and "biased" decision-making, but it appears to have inherited and compounded the flaws of its predecessor. The election of Libya -- one of the world's worst human rights violators -- to the UN Human Rights Council as it commences its new session is an affront to the case and cause of human rights. Libya's Gaddafi regime is notorious for its systematic and widespread violations of human rights, including its patterns of arbitrary arrest and detention, torture and persecution of minorities, let alone the 1998 bombing of Pan-Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

Monday, 4 October, 2010: TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Chevron Corp and Occidental have not extended their five-year oil and gas licenses in Libya, a senior executive with Libya's NOC state energy firm told Reuters. Other companies whose licenses were not extended included Australia's Woodside Petroleum and Abu Dhabi-based Liwa Energy, NOC Exploration Director Hadj Fitouri said in an interview. He said the companies which had agreed license extensions were Hess, Petrobras, Indonesia's Medco Energi, Oil India Ltd and Algerian state energy firm Sonatrach. Chevron and Occidental were part of a first wave of foreign firms which rushed to invest in Libya's energy sector after sanctions were lifted but many of them have since failed to make any major oil or gas discoveries. "Some companies have seen their deals extended but other firms did not want to extend their deals and are on the way to leaving Libya," Fitouri said in the interview. [Reuters] More
Monday, 4 October, 2010: Residents of Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, have been grumbling that since a Libyan state company took over the domestic phone company this summer, it is harder than ever to place a call. Enlarge This Image To be fair, it’s early days for the Lap Green Network, the new owner, which is promising significant investment. In June, Lap Green — part of the Libyan sovereign wealth fund — bought 75 percent of Zamtel, the ailing Zambian telecommunications company, for $257 million. But what was supposed to have been a simple privatization to replenish state coffers and place a decrepit company on a sound financial footing has degenerated into a nasty domestic feud over the sale process. Opposition figures, transparency advocates and some analysts argue that the transaction was cloaked in secrecy and riddled with irregularities. [New York Times] More

Sunday, 3 October, 2010: Two South Koreans have been released in Libya after being arrested for violating the North African country's religious law earlier in the year, the foreign ministry said Sunday. The release of the Koreans took place on Saturday, two days after Rep. Lee Sang-deuk met with Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi on Thursday. Lee is the elder brother of President Lee Myung-bak. The two men were handed over to their respective families in the presence of the Korean ambassador to Libya, the ministry said. It said no conditions were attached to their release. The two men, identified only by their family names of Koo and Jeon, were arrested in June and July after having been accused of conducting missionary activities in the North African country. The two had been moved to a detention facility in August after being questioned by the authorities. [Korea Times] More
Sunday, 3 October, 2010: CAIRO (Xinhua) - The Arab peace initiative follow-up committee will hold an emergency meeting in the Libyan city of Sirte on Friday to discuss the developments of the direct peace talks following Israel's decision not to extend a settlement building freeze, an official with the Arab League said Saturday. The meeting, to be held at a ministerial level, will come a few days ahead of the extraordinary Arab summit, due to take place on Oct. 9 in the Libyan city, Egypt's official MENA news agency quoted the Arab League deputy chief Ahmed Ben Helli as saying. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will brief the committee on the developments of the U.S. efforts to save the direct Palestinian-Israeli negotiations which were re-launched in Washington on Sept. 2.

Saturday, 2 October, 2010: Libya and South Korea have ended a months-long diplomatic dispute that was sparked by accusations of South Korean spying on Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. The agreement came after Lee Sang-deuk, a brother of South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, met with the Libyan leader in Tripoli on Thursday. A South Korean official told news agencies in Seoul that Mr. Gadhafi had agreed to end the "unsavory" dispute. The South Korean news agency Yonhap said Mr. Gadhafi has promised to work toward reopening Libya's de facto embassy in Seoul and releasing two South Koreans detained in Libya. [Voice of America] More
Saturday, 2 October, 2010: The Turkish newspaper Today's Zaman reported last week that Turkish businessmen were practically having "zero problems, maximum trade" with Libya. One of those businessmen is Erman Ilacak, the president of Renaissance Construction -- Turkey's second largest building contractor. Ilacak launched a project to build Africa's largest shopping mall -- Zümrüt -- in Tripoli recently. The construction, which is still underway, is taking place on an area of 280,000 square meters and is expected to be finished in 2011. Il?cak says Turkey's new foreign policy has turned not only Libya, but also Syria, Egypt and Russia into huge markets for Turkish entrepreneurs. [Tripoli Post] More
Saturday, 2 October, 2010: Scotland disregarded a U.S. request last year for "an independent and comprehensive medical exam" to determine whether the Lockerbie bomber was close enough to death to qualify for compassionate release from jail under Scottish guidelines, a Department of Justice official said Wednesday. The statement, made by Deputy Assistant Attorney General Bruce Swartz, came in a long-awaited U.S. Senate hearing on the release of Abdel Baset Al-Megrahi, the only person convicted in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, which killed 270 people including 189 Americans. Scotland granted Mr. Megrahi so-called compassionate release in August 2009 on the grounds that he was suffering from terminal prostate cancer and had roughly three months to live.

Saturday, 2 October, 2010: LAGOS: Al Hilal of Sudan will this weekend welcome Libya's Al Ittihad in a CAF Confederation Cup Group A match likely to decide the overall winner of this mini-group stage of the competition. Both teams have recorded nine points from four matches with Ittihad top of the standings having scored more goals than their Sudanese rivals. Al Hilal beat the Libyan club 2-1 when they first clashed in August. However, Mali's Djoliba on four points are still in with a chance of reaching the knockout stage of the annual tournament if they win their remaining two matches. They host bottom team AS FAN of Niger and then two weeks later confront Ittihad in Tripoli. Djoliba held AS FAN to a goalless draw in Niamey and lost 1-0 at home to Ittihad.

Friday, 1 October, 2010: ROME (Dow Jones)--UniCredit SpA's (UCG.MI) board of directors Thursday responded to the Bank of Italy's request regarding the two stakes in UniCredit belonging to Libyan shareholders, saying there aren't enough information to consider the two stakes as autonomous. In a statement, the bank said further investigation is necessary to provide a complete assessment of the matter. Alessandro Profumo, former chief executive of UniCredit, resigned last week amid clashes with the board over Libya's growing influence over the lender. Tensions between Profumo and the board worsened in August when the Libyan Investment Authority, Libya's sovereign-wealth fund, disclosed that it had purchased a 2% stake in the bank on Milan's stock exchange.

Friday, 1 October, 2010: Two of America’s most prominent prostate cancer experts have told senators they are “not at all surprised” the Lockerbie bomber is still alive more than a year after his release. Dr James Mohler said the prognosis that led to Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, being allowed to return to Libya on compassionate grounds was “difficult to believe and possibly even ridiculous”. And Dr. Oliver Sartor told the US Senate’s foreign relations committee the chemotherapy the bomber only started receiving after being released from a Scottish prison could extend his life by at least 19 months. Both men said al-Megrahi would have struggled to walk to and from the aeroplane that transported him to the Libyan capital, Tripoli, in August last year if he had less than three months to live.

Friday, 1 October, 2010: RABAT, Sept 30 (Reuters) - An unpredictable succession, suspicion of foreign influence, diplomatic rows, policy uncertainty and the lingering threat of social unrest all pose potential risks for investors in oil-producer Libya. Here are some risk factors to watch. UNCERTAIN SUCCESSION : Muammar Gaddafi has led Libya for more than 40 years, longer than any living African leader. He is in his late 60s, but there is no framework for his succession and he has carefully avoided designating a successor. Analysts say he appears to be in good health but that, when he dies, years of instability could follow as competing groups and relatives struggle for supremacy. The liberal-leaning Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, who took a central role in ending Libya's stand-off with the West, has the highest profile among Gaddafi's sons but lacks any official role and Libya experts say he has little support from the army, whose endorsement is seen as vital if he is to hold power.

Friday, 1 October, 2010: The secretary of the management committee for the Libyan labour and vocational training office, Dr Amin Mansour Amine, says Libya has some 100,000 official job seekers.

On the commitment by foreign companies to recruit local labour, Dr Amine said the vision of the Libyan authorities focused on a partnership which included employment and training for the youth. The Libyan official said the future plan for his institution was to employ the youth in projects being implemented in the country, adding that they were working to sign agreements with various institutions including oil companies, the railway project and the major cement works to supply them with human resources.
