At least 10,000 missiles are unaccounted for in Libya, a senior NATO official has admitted, according to a German media report, amid fears the weapons could fall into the hands of al-Qaeda.
News weekly Der Spiegel reported on its website on Sunday that Admiral Giampaolo di Paola, who chairs the committee of NATO military chiefs, held a secret briefing for German MPs on Monday, in which he expressed the alliance’s concerns.
The weapons could end up in other countries and in the wrong hands, the admiral said, according to Spiegel, “anywhere from Kenya to Kunduz” in Afghanistan.
The missiles present “a serious threat to civil aviation”, the Italian admiral reportedly said.
