Ministry of Foreign Affairs Reacts to Reports that Ethiopia Could Not Accommodate Gadaffi’s Entourage Coming for AU Summit
ADDIS ABABA, DEC. 30, 2002--Diplomatic sources told Addis Tribune that if Libyan President Moamar Gadaffi was coming to attend the summit, expected to take place in early February, he might bring an excessive number of bodyguards and officials as he had unexpectedly done when he attended the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) held in Durban, South Africa last August and the African union Summit in Togo.

The Libyan leader had an entourage of 750 people and 60 cars when he went to Durban for the WSSD summit. And hundreds of cars and guards followed him at the AU summit in Togo.
