Libyan security officials to visit Washington over weekend

Libyan officials on Thursday said the country's intelligence chief and interior minister will visit Washington this weekend for talks with US officials. The visit by intelligence chief, Moussa Kossa, and Interior Minister Abdel-Fatah Younes comes a few days after US President George W. Bush telephoned Libya's Moammar Gadhafi to express his satisfaction over a $1.5 billion payment that Tripoli made to settle a long-standing dispute over terror attacks, including the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am jetliner over Scotland.
