The chargé d’affaires at the Libyan embassy in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka has accused his predecessor hiring a group of Bangladeshis to and breaking into the building to take it over. Khaled Mohamed Abu Said has alleged that the former head of mission, Mhamoud Sallabi, last week hired 50 men who then broke into the building and attacked staff. He said that said an investigation team from the Bangladeshi Foreign Ministry would visit the embassy to talk to officials on the matter. He also called on the Bangladeshi authorities to have nothing to do with Sallabi, who he claimed had been sacked by the Libyan government for corruption.
