US and UK Concerned About the Political Situation in Libya

Libyan legislators recently passed a measure banning anyone who served with Gaddafi from office


LONDON, May 8 (UPI) — There's no place for armed intimidation in a Libya struggling to make post-conflict political transitions, the U.S. and British governments said Wednesday.

Libyan lawmakers last weekend voted in favor of a measure that barred top figures from Moammar Gadhafi's government from political office. The law could extend to current high-ranking officials, including Prime Minister Ali Zeidan.
