World Bank recognizes Libya’s new rulers

TRIPOLI (AFP) — The World Bank said Tuesday it recognizes the National Transitional Council as Libya’s official government, after the new regime promised moderate Islamic rule and to investigate alleged war crimes.

Explaining its decision was based on “evolving events in Libya and the views of member countries,” the bank pledged a major rebuilding role after seven months of an insurrection that ousted dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

The move came as the NTC sought the surrender of Gadhafi diehards who have been mounting attacks against its fighters from a few enclaves including the oasis town of Bani Walid, southeast of Tripoli.
