UN Security Council concern over Libya arms stockpile

The United Nations Security Council has expressed concern over the fate of the massive weapons stockpile built up in Libya under Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

The council called on Libya and its neighbours to stamp out the proliferation of looted arms.

It is worried they could fall into the hands of al-Qaeda and other militant groups.
