on Libyan interim Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni's recent meetings with Obama administration officials in Washington:
Libya’s neighbors are so concerned about the spreading instability that they may seek a UN Security Council resolution endorsing foreign military intervention, Karim Mezran, a Libya expert at the Atlantic Council, told Al-Monitor. Egypt and Algeria, both adamantly opposed to political Islam, are among likely contributors if foreign forces get involved, Mezran said.
Mezran said that “in theory, the congress should decide in 45 days when to hold presidential elections” and voting for that office might take place in the fall.
