Rebels start receiving arms in Libya
Weapon supplies from abroad have started for Libyan rebels, that country’s opposition National Transition Council said, without mentioning the countries which decided to render assistance of this kind.
Some opposition soldiers were reported to have been seen wearing British-made armor vests.
Meanwhile, heavy fighting is under way between forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and the opposition. The Colonel’s artillery continues to fire shells at the rebel-controlled cities of Misurata and Ajdabiya. Clashes are also intense in Marsa El Brega.
