Libyan envoy to Bangladesh resigns
Libya's ambassador in Dhaka has resigned in a move to support protests against embattled Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi, Bangladeshi media reports said Tuesday, quoting Foreign Ministry officials.
Ahmed A H Elimam tendered his resignation Monday and also informed the Bangladeshi authorities of his decision, the Prothom Alo newspaper quoted an unnamed official as saying, DPA reported.
The Libyan embassy did not make any public statement.
Syed Masud Mahmood Khundoker, director general of external publicity at the Foreign Ministry, said he heard about the resignation, but it has not been confirmed through official channels.
Anti-government protesters in Libya are demanding an end to Gaddafi's 41-year rule. A government crackdown on the protesters left hundreds of people dead.
