CAIRO (AP) — A cousin and onetime top aid of former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi will face trial in Egypt on charges of attempted murder.
Prosecutor Hamdi Mansour ordered Sunday that Ahmed Qaddaf al-Dam be tried for attempted murder, resisting arrest and possession of firearms without a license. The charges stem from a skirmish with police during his arrest last month in Cairo.
Al-Dam had long been the point man on relations between Libya and Egypt under Gadhafi. He challenged a Libyan request to extradite him, though two other Libyan officials arrested along with him have already been sent back.
An Egyptian court ruled in his favor on grounds he fears he won't be guaranteed his full rights in Libya.
Libya has asked Egypt to hand over around 100 other former regime officials.
