BONN — West Germany has recalled its ambassador from Libya for consultations over the murder in Bonn of a Libyan dissident, the government said Wednesday.
"He will gather official information in Tripoli and then report to the Foreign Ministry in Bonn," chief government spokesman Peter Boenisch told a news conference.
Gebril Denali, 30, an exiled opponent of Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi, was slain in Bonn's crowded Cathedral Square last Saturday and another Libyan has been charged with the killing.
Two West German passersby, a man and a woman, were wounded in the incident.
Boenisch said Libyan officials have denied official Libyan involvement in the killing.
