North Korean Weapons Found in Libya

[imText1]Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Qadhafi has been using weapons purchased from North Korea in his faltering attempt to suppress anti-government protests.

As revealed by South Korean television broadcaster SBS on the 28th, boxes containing rockets and clearly bearing the name North Korea were found in Ras Lanuf following the retreat of pro-Qadhafi forces under NATO air strikes.

The boxes were disguised as parts for bulldozers.

Elsewhere, “64 Machinegun” was found written in Korean on an anti-aircraft heavy machine gun. A similar model of machinegun has been seen many times in images released by the North Korean authorities.
