Gaddafi's Ex-Prime Minister in Court

Al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi is accused of "committing prejudicial acts against the security of the state and financial crimes"


MUAMMAR Gaddafi's last prime minister has become the highest ranking former regime official to go before Libyan judges, in a brief but sullen court appearance.

Dressed in a traditional white robe and brown vest, Al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi sat in stony silence within a caged section of the Tripoli criminal court, where figures of the toppled Gaddafi regime are facing justice.
