The United States and South Africa have locked horns at the UN Security Council over a US bid to unfreeze over 10-billion-Rands of Libyan assets to provide humanitarian aid.
South Africa insisted that the Council wait for the African Union to decide whether to recognise the Libyan National Transitional Council before approving the US move.
President Jacob Zuma left for Ethiopia today to attend tomorrow’s AU meeting in Addis Ababa.
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has, meanwhile, urged the International Criminal Court to investigate Nato commanders for possible crimes against humanity during the organisation's bombing operations in Libya.
