CAIRO — Libya's former central bank governor, Farhat Omar Bin Guidara, on Friday announced that he was joining rebels seeking to overthrow Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
"I left Libya on Feb. 21, and since the beginning of March, I split from the regime. But due to the nature of my work, I made no press statements," Bin Guidara told the Al Arabiya news channel from London.
"I have announced my resignation and now I am supporting the . . . interim [rebel] council in providing suitable living conditions in areas that are facing unrest."
