UN reconsiders Libya sanctions
The UN Security Council is expected to vote Friday (September 16th) on a British resolution to ease Libya assets and arms sanctions, AFP reported. The draft also calls for setting up a UN mission to help Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) prepare for elections and a new constitution.
