Marco Rubio joins senators in trip to Libya

From a press release issued by the office of Sen. Marco Rubio:

This morning, Senator Rubio arrived in Libya on an official visit.

Senator Rubio is part of a congressional delegation that includes Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Mark Kirk. 

On Wednesday, they visited Malta where they met with Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi to discuss Malta’s ongoing efforts to facilitate Libya’s transition to democracy and life after Qaddafi.

Today, the delegation will spend the day in Libya meeting with key officials, including members of the Transitional National Council (TNC).  They will also be holding a press conference later today.  TV stations wishing to obtain this video should be able to access it through CNN and other networks that are expected to cover the press conference in Libya.  As we receive photos from the trip, we will pass them along.
