Gaddafi regime produced chemical weapons, David Cameron confirms
David Cameron said British chemical warfare specialists would join an international team to dispose of the weapons.
In the last few days we have learnt that the new Libyan authorities have found chemical weapons that were kept hidden from the world, he said during a speech at the Lord Mayor's banquet in London.
It is understood that the weapons were developed without the knowledge of inspectors who were in Libya before the international military intervention in March. The news gave greater weight to the decision to intervene in Libya, which declared an end to its weapons of mass destruction programme after the Americans invaded Iraq in 2003.
