Shock claim: Gadhafi deployed assassins to kill officials in N.Y.

The New York-based Libyan deputy ambassador to the United Nations, who recently defected from Moammar Gadhafi’s government, claims he has information Gadhafi hired assassins to kill him.

“We have even information that he has already hired some people to kill us,” stated Ibrahim O. A. Dabbashi, deputy U.N. ambassador for the so-called transitional Libyan government.

Dabbashi was referring to himself and to his colleague, Libyan Ambassadar Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgham, who works with him out of the Libyan mission in New York.

Dabbashi made the charges today in an interview with Aaron Klein on the latter’s radio program on New York’s WABC Radio.

“I am, and Ambassadar Shalgham, both of us, are almost on a daily basis criticized on the regime’s TV with all kinds of threats,” Dabbashi told Klein.

“But really we don’t pay any much attention to these kinds of threats,” he said.
