Al-Qaeda stole Surface to Air Missiles from Libya

The President of Chad,  Idriss Deby Itno, says that Al-Qaeda in North Africa used the turmoil in Libya to steal Surface to Air Misses and other weapons.  Itno says he is  “100 percent sure” that the weapons were taken.  The full interview with the President of Chad is due out on Monday.

“The Islamists of al-Qaeda took advantage of the pillaging of arsenals in the rebel zone to acquire arms, including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries in Tenere,” a desert region of the Sahara that stretches from northeast Niger to western Chad, Deby said in the interview.

“This is very serious. AQIM (al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb) is becoming a genuine army, the best equipped in the region,” he said.
