Javelin Antitank Missiles Found in Libya

On June 27, armed forces under the UN-backed Libyan National Army discovered four American-made Javelin antitank missiles at a rebel weapons cache near Tripoli. According to markings on the weapons, the United States originally supplied the missiles to the United Arab Emirates in a 2008 arms sale. In a statement, the U.S. Department of State announced an investigation of the unauthorized weapons transfer.
