Libya had undeclared chemical weapon stockpile
Amsterdam: The organisation that oversees a global ban on chemical weapons says a team of its inspectors has confirmed that former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi had an undeclared stockpile the weapons.
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons says inspectors who visited Libya this week found sulfur mustard and artillery shells "which they determined are chemical munitions”.
Libya`s new rulers told the Hague-based organisation about the previously unknown stockpile last year after toppling Gaddafi from power.
The organisation said in a statement on Friday the chemical weapons are stored at the Ruwagha depot in southeastern Libya together with chemical weapons that Gaddafi had declared to international authorities.
