Former Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril Dies Of Coronavirus

Former Libyan Prime Minister, Mahmoud Jibril has died at the age of 67 after contracting Coronavirus.

His National Forces Alliance (NFA) announced in a statement on Sunday, that he died in Cairo, Egypt, where he had been hospitalized for two weeks.

The UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) said Jibril died after a “battle with the coronavirus disease.”

“Dr. Jibril was particularly dedicated to building civil society and promoting the inclusion of women and young Libyans in politics. Dr. Jibril was a friend and mentor to many and participated most recently in the UN-facilitated Political Dialogue Forum.

He will be greatly missed,” Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of UNSMIL Stephanie Williams said in a statement Sunday.

On March 27, the NFA announced that Jibril tested positive for COVID-19, adding that he was in “stable health on the course to recovery.”

Mr, Mahmoud served as interim Prime Minister of the opposition government that led the country through the civil war until the first post-Gadhafi elections were held in 2012.
