Zhirinovsky Stays On

MOSCOW () -- Russian ultranationalist leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky, enjoying his hearty welcome in Libya, has extended his visit to Tripoli, his spokesman said Monday.

Interfax quoted spokesman Viktor Filatov as saying a Liberal Democratic Party delegation, in Libya at the invitation of the Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, returned to Moscow late Sunday without its leader, Zhirinovsky. Filatov said Zhirinovsky, who met top Libyan officials during his four-day visit, had decided to stay for a few more days.
