Hillary Clinton Warns Libya Rebels

At an international summit on the future of Libya, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cautioned Libya’s new leaders that the U.S. will be closely watching how they handle the Lockerbie bomber. Abdelbasset al-Meghrahi was freed by Scotland on compassionate grounds that he was terminally ill, but new suspicions have arisen that the Libyan national was merely faking it. Clinton also cautioned that the Gaddafi regime’s cache of weapons—which includes a mustard agent—must be secured. The U.N. summit concluded by calling for a future resolution that would untie assets in order to help the new Libyan government.
