Latest update : 2011-09-10

The leader of Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC), Mustafa Abdel Jalil, flew to Tripoli Saturday on his first trip to the capital since opposition forces took control in late August.

AFP – The head of Libya's new leadership, National Transitional Council chief Mustafa Abdel Jalil, flew on Saturday to Tripoli for his first visit since its fighters seized the capital and ousted Moamer Kadhafi, an AFP correspondent said.   

Abdel Jalil told AFP his visit to Tripoli from NTC headquarters in Benghazi was "temporary" and that the council he heads would be transferred to Tripoli "after the (full) liberation" of the country.
             
"Yes, God willing," he replied when asked if he was flying to Tripoli as he boarded a plane in the country's second city Benghazi in the east.
