Libya's last PM under Gaddafi likely to be extradited

9:45 pm on 9 November 2011

A court in Tunisia has ruled that Al-Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi, the last prime minister of Libya under Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, should be extradited to Libya.

The new authorities there want to put Mr Al-Mahmoudi on trial, the BBC reports.

His lawyer has called the ruling political, and says Mr al-Mahmoudi will be in danger because of what he called the chaos in Libya.
