On September 25, 2011, Libyan leaders met to begin discussion regarding the formation of the country's interim government. The week prior, the World Bank had officially recognized the National Transitional Council (NTC) as the official government of Libya. The NTC had responded to an Amnesty International (AI) report alleging that both sides in the Libyan conflict were responsible for human rights abuses. The Libyan General National Congress recently elected Mohamed al-Megaryef, once an opponent to former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, as the interim president.
