Libyan plans to rebuild transport infrastructure


Libya is sending delegations to Russia and China to discuss contracts to help rebuild the country's transport infrastructure.

The move follows the suspension of UN sanctions against Libya after it handed over for trial the two men suspected of carrying out the Lockerbie bombing.

Correspondents say Libya hopes to buy Russian aircraft for Libyan Arab Airlines, which it says lost three billion dollars as a result of the sanctions.

The delegation going to China will discuss plans for building a railway.
