Libyan leader returns to University of Washington

Until last February, Ali Tarhouni was a senior lecturer at the University of Washington Foster School of Business.

Since taking a leave of absence, he has helped lead the Libyan revolution. Tarhouni served as the Libyan rebels' oil and finance minister.

Now he's a special envoy and is launching a new political party.

Tarhouni has returned to visit Seattle and will hold a news conference Tuesday on campus.
