The members of Libya's National Transitional Council
Libya's National Transitional Council released an expanded list of its membership last week. Here's what we know about them.
Last week, Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) released an expanded list of its members and their geographic affiliation.
Below is the list, with a little bit of detail on some of the members (a lot of them we know next to nothing about). There have been rumblings in western Libya that a lot of the names assigned to towns there are longtime exiles who don't have local support.
The NTC has said the council will be expanded to about 80 people after Muammar Qaddafi is captured and cities still in loyalist hands, like Sirte and Sabha, fall.
I plan to revisit this list and update with a little basic information on some of the people below as I come across it.
