Libya

The Islamist coalition Libya Dawn announced that its forces have “secured” the US Embassy compound in Tripoli; the US State Department initially refused to comment, then said that only part of the compound had been breached. Another report said only the residential complex had been taken over. Tunisian authorities said several Ansar al Sharia members were arrested this past week in Libya, including Ahmad Roussi, who is suspected of involvement in the murder of politician Chokri Belaid as well as terrorist attacks in Jebel Chaambi.
