Libyan rebels: Give us guns

Opposition forces say they need weapons from abroad as their arsenal is limited and outdated.

    Abdel Fatah Younis, the commander of opposition forces in Libya, has said his troops have received anti-tank weapons from Qatar.

    But those may not be the only foreign weapons in opposition hands, as Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from opposition-held Tobruk.

    The rebels say they badly need more arms as they have only a small number of tanks and armoured vehicles and limited weaponry, relying mostly on anti-aircraft guns, RPGs and machine guns.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
