Libya bound

Members of Congress are set to visit unconventional weapons sites in Libya.

Rep. Curt Weldon (R-Pa.) will lead a historic congressional delegation to Tripoli this weekend to hold talks with Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi.

He and other members of Congress will also visit one of the unconventional weapons sites that Libya has agreed to open to international inspectors.

The touchdown of Weldon’s five-member bipartisan delegation aboard a U.S. Navy plane in Tripoli Sunday morning will mark the first official visit to Libya by American elected representatives since relations were severed in 1979.
