By Hadi Fornaji.
Tunis, 26 June 2017:
The Presidency Council’s education minister, Otman Abdul Jalil, has appointed Professor Ahmed Mahjoub Abukhazam as the new chancellor of the University of Sirte. He replaces Musa Mohamed Musa. The appointment was made four days ago but only announced today.
Abukhazam has previously served as dean of the faculty of science at the university.
Meanwhile, The chancellor of the Asmariya Islamic University in Zliten, Mustafa Omran bin Rabaa, for Islamic Sciences has died. Seventy years old, he suffred a heart attack yesterday, the first day of Eid.
In a separate development in Sirte, it has been announced that the Almadar movile telephone network is now operating in the town after a break of over two-years. During the time the so-called Islamic State contolled the town, using a mobile phone to telephone the outside world was enough to get oneself beheaded.
