Collecting Libya's arms tough task for NTC

Central command over various brigades and their weapons will be key to peaceful transition towards democracy.

    Last week, Libya’s National Transitional Council [NTC] announced the liberation of the country from Muammar Gaddafi, but the difficult task of collecting weapons left behind by the conflict lies ahead.

    Hundreds of brigades, who fought an eight-month battle against Gaddafi's 42-year rule, have left a huge cache of arms, ammunition and other weaponry.

    But the biggest challenge for the NTC is to put all of the brigades under its command as Libya starts its journey towards democracy.

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