Weapons from Libya fueling conflicts

DEADLY TRAIL:A five-member UN panel’s report says that over the past 12 months arms from Libya have gone to more than 12 countries in West Africa and the Levant


The most regular transfers of significant quantities of arms are going to Egypt and the Sahel, the panel said, with less regular transfers to Chad and Syria.

The panel said it received confidential information that 30 portable air defense systems from Libya were bought from traffickers in Chad, and some were transported to the capital, Ndjamena.
