The foreign minister of Poland, which holds the European Union's rotating presidency, said Monday his country is exploring ways it can help Libya's transition to democracy.

Radek Sikorski refused, however, to comment on a report saying Poland supplied Libyan rebels with weapons in the spring. 

The report, published Monday by the news agency PAP, cited an anonymous government source.

Meanwhile, a group of Libyan citizens briefly took over Libya's embassy in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Monday, raising the rebels' tricolour flag and demanding that the ambassador resign, before police removed them peacefully.

Former embassy employee, Amira Berma, told The Associated Press that the Libyan ambassador to Bosnia, Salem A. A. Finnir, was a die-hard Gadhafi supporter and should resign.

Berma was among a dozen protesters who entered the building, demanding that the ambassador surrender the embassy to them.

Berma said Finnir would inform Tripoli about any sign of disloyalty among staff, which always resulted in harassment of their families back in Libya.
