Libya Names New Foreign Minister

Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidan on Monday (December 7th) appointed Mohamed Abdulaziz as foreign minister. The decision follows the resignation a week ago of Zidan's choice for the post, Ali Suleiman Aujali.

The move also reintegrates the international co-operation and foreign ministries. Zidan separated the two ministries when he announced his government in October.
