The defection of Moussa Koussa

Libyan foreign minister flies to Britain and announces resignation from Muammar Gaddafi's government.


    Gaddafi's foreign minister has flown to Britain and is reportedly seeking refuge after abandoning the regime in Libya.

    A former spy chief, Koussa is not guaranteed a warm reception. When acting as Libyan ambassador to the UK, he was expelled from the country, after saying he would attempt to eliminate political opponents there.
