Sir Kim's efforts are designed to support all of those who have suffered as a result of Qadhafi's support to terrorism, and are not focused exclusively on any one group of victims. He has been talking to the Libyan Government about how best to take forward these matters given the challenging security and political situation in Libya.</p><p> </p> more like this
