WASHINGTON – The United States on Friday urged Libya’s interim leaders to provide “a transparent account” of the death of strongman Moamer Kadhafi.
The National Transitional Council “has already been working to determine the precise cause and circumstances of Kadhafi’s death and we obviously urge them to do so in an open and transparent manner as we move forward,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.
“We also continue to urge them, as we have been over the past months, to treat prisoners humanely,” Toner added.
US President Barack Obama said Thursday that Kadhafi’s death ended decades of “iron fist” rule in Libya and warned Arab tyrants that it showed their brutal regimes would inevitably fall.
