Britain to send military advisers to aid Libyan rebels

Published on 20 April 2011

Britain announced Tuesday that it will dispatch experienced military advisers to aid Libyan rebels in organizing their forces, as NATO and its allies struggled to break the stalemate in Libya without directly joining the fight on the ground.(..)Tuesday the U.N. World Food Program said it had started sending food into government-controlled western Libya for the first time since violence erupted in the country. A convoy of eight trucks loaded with 240 metric tons of wheat flour and 9.1 metric tons of high-energy biscuits — enough to feed nearly 50,000 people for 30 days — crossed into western Libya on Monday from the Tunisian border town of Ras Jdir.
