Britain sends officials to Libya to help destroy chemical weapons | The Guardian

Britain is sending officials to Libya to help the government to investigate the scale of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s secret chemical weapons stockpile, retained by the Libyan dictator in breach of promises made to the international community.

The size of the stockpile – including mustard gas – suggests Gaddafi totally misled Tony Blair when he promised to destroy weapons of mass destruction in return for being brought back in from the diplomatic cold in 2004.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons reported a week ago that the National Transitional Council had informed it further stocks of what are believed to be chemical weapons had been found.
