(AGI) Brussels - The African Union has petitioned European Union funds totalling some 260,000 euro for Libyan mediation purposes. With the AU engaged in mediating between Tripoli and Libya's insurgents, the funds were requested as part of what is ultimately viewed as an assisted transition process leading to democratic elections. News of the AU's request was provided by unnamed Brussels sources, according to whom the European Commission is currently weighing up the request.
