“Libya under [Muammar] Gaddafi became the first country in the world to issue a warrant against Osama bin Laden. For the murder of Silvan Becker and his wife, two German nationals, in Surt, Libya by Al Qaeda’s Libyan members on March 10, 1994, the judicial authorities of Libya filed a request for the extradition of Osama from any country except Israel. In response to Libya’s request dated March 16, 1998, Interpol issued a red notice on Osama and three of his accomplices for murder and possession of illegal firearms. His accomplices were named as al-Chalabi Faraj, born in 1966; al-Warfali Faed Abu Zeid Muftah, born in 1968; and al-Alwan Faraj Mikhail Abdul-Fadeel Jibril, born in 1969.”
