Libyan armed forces to be trained in Cambridgeshire

Up to 2,000 members of the Libyan Armed Forces are to be trained by British military at the army site in Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire.

The British government says it's an effort to professionalise Libya's military. They will be coached in basic infantry skills and leadership.

Foreign Secretary William Hague says they will be trained in small groups over a 10-week course and will be vetted in advance for medical, physical and behavioural suitability.

The Libyan Government will pay the costs of the training.
