Senators are pressuring the Bush administration to have a top US diplomat use his unusual visit to Libya to confront the country's leaders over its history of terrorism. The main focus of Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte's 10-day, four-nation trip to Africa is supposed to be the continuing crisis in Sudan's Darfur region. The tour, beginning Wednesday, will include Libya and make Negroponte the highest-ranking US diplomat to visit in half a century, In a letter, seven senators said they want the deputy secretary to demand action from Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on unresolved compensation for terrorist acts, especially the 1988 Lockerbie bombing of Pan Am 103. It was not yet clear whether Negroponte will meet with Gadhafi.
