Libyan cash flown from UK to Benghazi

Nearly $230m (£140m) worth of Libyan bank notes has been flown to the Libyan opposition stronghold of Benghazi by the UK air force.

The cash, printed in the UK, was the first instalment released after previously being frozen due to UN sanctions.

The money will be handed to Libya's Central Bank.

Jon Leyne was in Benghazi to watch the arrival.
