Turkey to represent US interests in Libya

Turkey says it has agreed to a U.S. request to represent U.S. interests in Libya.
The Turkish Embassy in Washington says that Turkey will act as an intermediary while the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli is closed. A State Department official confirmed the report but spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been signed officially.
The agreement comes as Turkey secured the release on Monday of four New York Times journalists who had been held in Libya.
