NBC News — Now that the war in Libya appears to be effectively over, the country's interim government is collecting weapons from the former rebels. The new Libyan authorities have begun to collect the hundreds of thousands of weapons used by the rebels across the country.
Most of the weapons fell into the hands of civilians who made up the bulk of the revolutionary troops. The transitional government has not given any time limit for the last delivery of the weapons. Government officials stress that Moammar Khaddafy's arsenal of chemical weapons and other weapons of mass destruction are secure and were secure throughout the duration of the conflict.
