Libyan soldier attack claims: 'Authorities didn't take care of cadets'

The British government is to blame for a group of Libyan soldiers being trained at a Cambridgeshire barracks facing allegations of sex attacks, one soldier has claimed.

About 300 cadets are being sent home early from Bassingbourn Barracks following the allegations.

Omar Al-Mukhtar, who is not one of those accused, told the BBC that the group blamed the British authorities for "not taking proper care of us" and for not teaching them about British law.

The MoD declined to comment on Mr Al-Mukhtar's criticism.
