CAIRO, December 17./TASS/. Extremists including Islamic State militants of the terror group banned in Russia have seized chemical weapons in southern Libya, a close aide and cousin of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi told pan-Arabic daily Asharq Al-Awsat on Thursday.
Ahmed Gaddaf al-Dam said "huge amounts" of sarin were being moved from desert areas in the south to the north of the country and to the suburbs of the Libyan capital, Tripoli. Al-Dam said terrorists already used sarin in Libya last year, but "it was neglected by the world community".
