Face Of The Day


Libya's leader Moamer Kadhafi stands during his meeting with Italy's President Giorgio Napolitano (not pictured) at Rome's Quirinale presidential palace on June 10, 2009 during Kadhafi's first visit to Italy. The three-day visit seals a major rapprochement since Italy signed a deal with its former 1911 to 1947 colony last year pledging five billion dollars (3.5 billion euros) over the next 25 years as compensation for colonising it. Rome has also stepped up its relations with Tripoli in recent years in a bid to rein in a massive influx of clandestine migrants, many of whom come by boat from Libya across the Mediterranean.
