U.S. appoints Peter Bad as new ambassador to Libya
The reports said Bad worked as U.S. ambassador in Nepal in 2012.
After the ratification of his appointment by Congress, the new ambassador would begin his mission to Libya, succeeding Amb. Deborah Jones. She presently operates from Malta after her evacuation from Tripoli in 2014.
Jones, who arrived in Libya in June 2013, is an Arabophone diplomat, who is member of the think tank Middle East Institute in Washington. She also served as ambassador in Kuwait from 2008 to 2011.
