Daily Star - Delegation following Sadr case returns from Libya, October 31, 2011

BEIRUT: A Lebanese Foreign Ministry delegation following up on the case of the disappearance of the influential Imam Musa al-Sadr returned to Lebanon from Libya Sunday.
The delegation included Foreign Affairs Minister General Director Haissam Jomaa and judge Hasan al-Shami, who held meetings with several Libyan ministers, officials and members of the Libyan National Transitional Council.
Jomaa declined to speak to reporters upon arrival at Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport. The delegation traveled to Libya on Oct. 23, days after deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was captured and killed by rebels.
The relationship between Lebanon and Libya had been severed under Gadhafi’s rule but reversed under the NTC. Sadr, a charismatic leader and one of the pioneers of Shiite empowerment in Lebanon, Sheikh Mohammad Yaacoub and journalist Abbas Badreddine were in Libya on an official visit in 1978 when they disappeared.
