Libya sends remaining nuclear parts to US
Libya has sent all its known remaining nuclear weapons-related equipment to the United States in the framework of a disarmament deal.
A ship carrying 500 metric tons of equipment left Libya on Saturday for an undisclosed location in the United States, White House spokesman Sean McCormack said, and added long-range missiles and launchers were also part of the cargo.
The move follows Tripoli's announcement in December that it was scrapping its weapons programs in a bid to end its international isolation. (Albawaba.com)
