Libya: Govt Number Two Flees Protest in Benghazi

19 January 2012

The deputy head of Libya’s National Transitional Council was manhandled by protesters on Thursday in the cradle of the uprising that ousted Moamer Kadhafi last year, witnesses said.

Abdelhafiz Ghoga, who also serves as official spokesman for the interim government, had to be escorted away after being mobbed by angry students at the the University of Ghar Yunis in Libya’s second-largest city Benghazi, the NTC’s wartime base.

Ghoga escaped unharmed from the assault but had to endure a tirade of abuse from the protesters who accused him of opportunism because of his belated defection from [the] Kadhafi regime, the witnesses said.

Students have been demonstrating on the Ghar Yunis campus for weeks to protest against the perceived lack of transparency of the administration that took over after Kadhafi’s ouster and the prominent position in it of a number of his longtime lieutenants. – ANP/AFP
