The new US Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones arrived in Tripoli on June 19 and presented her credentials to the Acting Deputy President of the General National Congress Mr. Saleh Al-Makhzoum.
In early May, the security situation in Tripoli deteriorated when armed groups seized Libyan government buildings in a dispute over a law regarding officials of the former regime. In response, on May 8, the Department of State ordered the departure of a number of U.S. government personnel in Tripoli.
