The son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi unveiled an ambitious plan on Monday to protect ancient Greek ruins, conserve the country's pristine Mediterranean coastline and draw eco-tourists to this former pariah state. Seif al-Islam Gadhafi's plan is part of an attempt to dramatically change the image of Libya - to an ecologically friendly tourist destination - at a time when the country is nearing its long-sought political goal: getting into the West's good graces. The younger Gadhafi announced the project at a lavish ceremony inside a 2,200-year-old Greek gymnasium in the ruins of the ancient city of Cyrene, one of the country's largely untouched and unvisited antiquity sites that Libya hopes will pull in foreigners.
