THE Libyan rebels yesterday appointed Mahmoud Jebril as the head of a new interim government.
Mr Jebril, who was educated in Egypt and the US, spent much of his career outside Libya as a lecturer on strategic planning and decision-making before he was asked by a reformist son of Col Gaddafi to head Libya's main economic planning council.
He later quit in frustration when his proposals to liberalise Libya's statist economy were rejected.
