Rebels want to represent Libya at OPEC meeting

Libyan Oil Minister Shukri Ghanem has left the country, amid reports that he has defected, BBC reported. Tuni­sian officials say Ghanem – a former prime minister – crossed into Tunisia by road before going to the island of Djerba. A spokesman for the Libyan rebels told the BBC the minister had defected, and was on his way to a European country. The Libyan government said he had been on official business in Tunisia, but that Tripoli had lost touch with him. Following the reports, a spokesperson for the rebel National Transitional Council said the body wants to represent the country at June’s OPEC meeting.
