Ex-Libyan oil minister found dead in Vienna's Danube River

Vienna, Mon, 30 Apr 2012 ANI

Vienna, Apr 30 (ANI): Libya's former oil minister Shukri Ghanem has been found dead in the Danube river flowing through Vienna, Austria.

A passer-by reported seeing the body under a bridge near a popular recreation ground in Vienna.

Austrian police spokesman Roman Hahslinger said Ghanem was dressed when he was found, but had no personal identification documents on him, with the exception of one naming the company he was working for.

"There would be no signs of violence if someone pushed him in. But it's also possible that he became ill and fell into the water," the BBC quoted the spokesman, as saying.

According to the report, Ghanem, 69, worked as a consultant for a Vienna-based company.

He is understood to have been in Europe since his defection last June, and to have had family in Vienna.

Ghanem connection to the city dates back to the time he worked at the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec), a forum he visited regularly as Libyan oil minister. (ANI)
