Security in Libya: PM urges compatriots to dispose of arms

Tripoli, Libya - Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan has called on his compatriots to get rid of the arms in their possession, which constitute a threat to general security.

The Prime Minister made the call in a statement posted on the government's website, following the total destruction of the chemical weapons inherited from the former regime.

He said the government, with the support of the international community, is working to get rid of the arms which have proliferated the country.

Zeidan said the security agencies would not be able to ensure the security of lives and property for as long as arms continue to circulate and the armed groups are moving around freely.

Libya has been thrown into turmoil, with armed attacks and assassinations recorded almost on a daily basis, since the 2011 uprising that saw the end of Mouammar Kadhafi.
