PanARMENIAN.Net - Libya's interim government has agreed on a cabinet line up, with the new defence minister named as the local commander whose forces captured Moammer Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam, local media reported Tuesday, Nov 22.

Osama al-Juwali, head of the military council in Zintan, was given the defence portfolio, while the deputy envoy to the UN, Ibrahim Dabashi, was named as foreign minister, Libya Al-Ahrar TV reported.

In other appointments, current interim Oil Minister, Ali al-Tarhouni, was given the finance portfolio.
