Attack on Central Bank of Libya condemned by UN

Still serving: Saddek Elkaber

The central bank is caught in the middle of a power struggle between two rival ‘governments' competing for control of the country. This week the central bank branch in Benghazi – a separate location from its headquarters in Tripoli – came under siege from a group of fighters.
