Should I freeze Moammar Gadhafi’s bank account? What about Muammar Gaddahi? Mu’ammar Kadafi?

Arabic names are a problem for Bbanks. How do they know which accounts to freeze when there are so many ways to spell Moammar Gadhafi’s name?

Hugo Chávez offers to help Libya out

Hugo Chàvez has offered to help Libyan rebels negotiate with Gadhafi. The rebels aren’t interested in negotiating.

The rebel leadership said the international community had yet to inform them of any initiative from the Venezuelan president, who reportedly contacted the embattled Libyan leader earlier this week in a bid to enter the fortnight-long violent standoff.

“Talk of peace is far too late,” said a second member of the organising committee, Salwa Bogheiga. “A lot of people have died and there is no one to negotiate with. They lost that right when they started killing people on 17 February.”


In Tripoli, the Libyan government said it accepted the Venezuelan offer.
