ISIL Militants Seized Chemical Weapons in Libya

Extremists including ISIL militants have seized chemical weapons in Southern Libya, a close aide and cousin of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi told pan-Arabic daily Asharq Al-Awsat on Thursday.

Ahmed Gaddaf al-Dam said “huge amounts” of sarin were being moved from desert areas in the south to the north of the country and to the suburbs of the Libyan capital, Tripoli. Al-Dam said terrorists already used sarin in Libya last year, but “it was neglected by the world community”.

The newspaper’s account mirrors chaos reigning nationwide. Two governments run administrations, each city has its own authorities and every settlement is subject only to tribal chiefs, TASS reported.
