Libya rebels say arms no issue;Qatar,others to help

BENGHAZI, Libya, March 9 (Reuters) - The rebel movement in eastern Libya said on Wednesday it did not see any issue in obtaining more arms as needed and said it had been promised help from Qatar and other countries.

“Our military committee is assessing what we need. A no-fly zone will be great, but our troops will also be facing tanks. We will see whether we need to make (arms) purchases. I do not see getting arms as an issue. Qatar and many other countries have offered to help,” said Mustafa Gheriani, media officer for the rebel National Libyan Council in the eastern city of Benghazi.
