Chemical weapons found by National Transitional Council

No details of what kind of chemical and biological weapons were found, just that they were found. (I'm sure details will be out soon...)
Not surprising that Ghadafi had these kinds of things piled up in libya, he was after all a terrorist.
all we can hope for is that they are all found and destroyed before the radical Islamists can get there grimy hands on them; they would certainly be used.

Chemical weapons have been found in Libya by National Transitional Council forces, it was revealed yesterday.

The NTC, the group governing Libya after the ousting of Colonel Gaddafi, has secured them.

An NTC representative said: “They are from the Gaddafi era and are under guard until they can be handed over.”

The United Nations is helping co-ordinate as the NTC and international organisations take control of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, as well as other non-conventional weapons...

Libya also accumulated the largest known stockpile of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles in any non-producing country.

Thousands were destroyed during NATO operations but Mr Martin said the UN is increasingly concerned over looting and spread of these weapons and other arms, as well as mines being newly laid.
