US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will meet with a leading member of the Libyan opposition on Tuesday while visiting London for an international conference on Libya, an official said.

She will meet with Mahmud Jibril, who handles foreign affairs for Libya's rebel transitional national council, a senior US administration official said.

Clinton previously met Jibril on March 15 in Paris where she was attending a Group of Eight meeting.

She is in London for a meeting of international powers to map out Libya's future.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague invited Jibril to London but did not invite him to the conference, the Foreign Office said.
