Former Libyan Oil Chief drowned in Austria
Austrian police say former Libyan Oil Minister Shukri Ghanem was found dead in Vienna's Danube river.
Police spokesman Roman Hahslinger said his corpse was found Sunday morning floating in the river and showed no external signs of violence.
He says the cause of death was not immediately clear and officials will carry out an autopsy in the coming days.
He says Ghanem, who worked as a consultant for a Vienna-based company, apparently left his home early Sunday normally dressed.
Ghanem served under Libya's late leader Col. Moammar Gadhafi as head of the country's national oil company.
