Officials say that Libya's stockpiles of chemical warfare materials and yellowcake uranium are largely secured. Despite this, there are reports of numerous conventional weapons gone missing from the arsenals of the fallen Khaddafy regime.

There are now indications that large numbers of Libyan firearms are turning up in neighboring Sudan's conflict-ridden Darfur region and other nearby African states. Prior to the outbreak of the popular uprising in February, Libya was believed to possess several tons of chemical weapons and raw uranium. For the most part, these stockpiles were secured quickly by rebel forces.
