CAIRO: Libya’s Prime Minister Abdullah al Thinni said on Sunday Qatar had sent three military planes loaded with weapons and ammunition to a Tripoli airport controlled by an armed opposition group. “Unfortunately they (the planes) reached (Tripoli) Matiga airport,” he told UAE-based Arab TV channel Sky News. “We will consider. breaking off relations if this interference into Libya’s internal affairs continued.” He said there were official reports that these war planes carried weapons and ammunition. Thinni also repeated accusations against Sudan, saying Khartoum had tried sending a military plane loaded with ammunition to Matiga, an airport controlled by an armed opposition group which seized the capital Tripoli last month.

    Dear Libya! Please do something for your citizens, and foreign interference will die its own death. They are sending arms because there is strong demand inside your own country.
