Libyan opposition leader expected in Cairo Friday

Libyan opposition leader Mahmoud Jibril is to arrive Friday in Cairo to attend an emergency meeting of the Arab League on Saturday, official sources at the Cairo airport said.

"Jibril will arrive aboard a private plane from Istanbul," added the sources.

On Thursday, the Arab League recognized the opposition Transitional National Council as the legitimate representative of the Libyan people and said the council would take the North African country's seat in the pan-Arab organization, DPA reported.

The organization suspended Libya from its sessions in February when troops of the Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi responded with bloody violence to anti-government protests.

Foreign ministers of the Arab League are to meet Saturday in Cairo for talks on Libya and Syria.
