The members of Libya's National Transitional Council

Last week, Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) released an expanded list of its members and their geographic affiliation.

Kristen Chick, who's in eastern Libya, took the trouble to transcribe the Arabic list into English for me. Just tossing it up here since I haven't seen the full list elsewhere.

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.
