In this article, William outlines the discovery of chemical bombs in Libya and the events surrounding this discovery. Leaders did not acknowledge existence of these weapons at first, but they have at this point. Foreign inspectors may come later this week and remove these weapons due to the threat they pose to other countries.

On Sunday, Libyan Prime minister Mahmoud Jibril confirmed that there were chemical weapons in Libya. He also said that Libya doesn’t want any weapons like these, so foreign inspectors were hired to come and deal with the issue later this week. Chemical weapons were located last week, but Jibril did not say anything about them until he confirmed their existence yesterday.
This article did come from a biased site: Fox News. However, I do not think any bias is applicable because this is concerning weapons in Libya and not a political scandal.
I think Libya having chemical weapons is very dangerous because they just got out of a revolution in which the United Nations helped the rebels. If they wanted to, Libya could have used one of the weapons against the United States or another member of the UN. I think the foreign inspectors should rid Libya of all deadly weapons, such as the chemical bombs, until they might actually need them, which may not even happen.
