TUNIS - Libya's oil chief, Omran Abukraa, is in Tunisia and did not return to Libya after a trip abroad, a Tunisian official source told Reuters on Saturday.

The source said Abukraa had arrived in Tunisia after a trip to Italy. Abukraa represented Libya at the last OPEC meeting in June after Tripoli's long-serving oil chief Shokri Ghanem defected from Muammar Gaddafi's government and said he supported the aims of rebels trying to topple him.
