Libyan embassy switches to rebel side

The Libyan embassy in Dhaka switched to the rebel side and has pledged allegiance to the National Transitional Council.

“The embassy supports wishes of the Libyan people and the revolution of 17th February and remains with choice of the people, as it was representing the people and the state, because it is belongings of the Libyan people,” says a press release of the embassy yesterday.

The embassy will continue to provide the people with all facilities and will work to strengthen the relation between Libya and Bangladesh, the statement added.

Earlier, Libyan Ambassador in Bangladesh Ahmad Ateya Hamd Al-Imam resigned from the office on February 21 protesting the bloodshed in his country.

Meanwhile, sources said the officials and employees of the embassy on Wednesday removed portraits of Moammar Gadhafi and the national flag.
