After years of reticence and denial, the Libyan government has agreed to cooperate with Lebanon in clarifying the fate of missing Shiite Imam Musa Sadr who vanished while on a trip to Libya 36 years ago, the National News Agency (NNA) reported Monday.Sadr, the founder of Amal Movement -- now headed by Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri -- went missing during a visit to Libya on Aug. 31, 1978, along with his two companions -- Sheikh Mohammad Yacoub and journalist Abbas Badreddine.His disappearance caused a rift between Lebanon and the regime of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, which continuously denied any involvement in Sadr's disappearance, maintaining that he had left Libya for Italy.
