Libya Union President Survives Assassination Attempt

This is a crosspost from the Arab Trade Union Confederation.

Nermin Sharif, president of the Libyan General Federation of Trade Unions, was subjected to a failed assassination attempt at dawn today, when her booby-trapped car exploded just before riding it.

The Arab Trade Union confederation condemns this cowardly terrorist act, and wishes safety for all trade unionists.

Sharif was elected federation president in September.
