Libya’s former prime minister dies from coronavirus

Libya’s former interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jebril has died from coronavirus, according to his political party.

The 67-year-old contracted the virus in Egypt in late March and died at a hospital in Cairo, according to his aide.

He was in power as head of the National Transitional Council during months of civil war in 2011 which led to the ousting of former long-time ruler Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.
