Yesterday US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the Algerian militants involved in the attack on a desert gas plant 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."
AQIM - Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb - is an affiliate of al Qaeda.
Hillary Clinton was testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the September attack by Islamist militants in which the US ambassador and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi.
