Libyan government to review its ambassadors

TRIPOLI - The Libyan government is reassessing its ambassadors worldwide and will dismiss those who had ties with ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi, a foreign ministry official said.
The move appears to be a bid by the National Transitional Council (NTC) to quell growing discontent from Libyans who fear that the corruption of Gaddafi's rule did not die with him and that his cronies continue to hold positions of power.
"There is a plan to reassess the embassies and there is a new list for the ambassadors and embassy staff," the official, who asked not to be named, told Reuters.
