US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that Algerian militants involved in the attack on a desert gas plant in Algeria this month had weapons from Libya.
"There is no doubt that the Algerian terrorists had weapons from Libya. There is no doubt that the Malian remnants of AQIM have weapons from Libya," she is speaking at a Senate hearing on the September attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya.
AQIM - Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb - is an affiliate of al Qaeda.
