Libyan police arrested six Qataris at Benghazi airport on Saturday as they tried to board a plane to Turkey using forged Libyan passports and carrying almost $146,000, airport security sources said. Western diplomats in Libya worry that Benina airport in Benghazi is being used by Islamists to travel to Turkey to join rebels in Syria.
Libyans do not need a visa for Turkey, which is linked to Benghazi by daily flights. Security is often lax at the small airport. The six men were about to board a flight to Istanbul, with an onward booking to Doha. (Reuters)
