'Italy to Arm Libyan Revolutionaries'

Libya's National Transitional Council says Italy has agreed to supply the revolutionaries with weapons in their fight against forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi.

Asked whether he could confirm the reports, Abdel-Hafiz Ghoga, spokesman for the revolutionaries' Transitional National Council, said, "Yes, the military officers have confirmed that they have an agreement with the Italians.”

"They will supply us with weapons. They've already been there (to Rome) twice, and we will receive them very soon," he told a news conference in opposition-held town of Benghazi on Saturday.'
