Libya says all of its chemical weapons, including bombs and artillery shells filled with mustard gas, have been completely destroyed.
A foreign ministry official told Libyan state media Tuesday that Libya is totally empty of any presence of chemical weapons which could pose a threat to the safety of people, the environment, or neighboring regions.
The elimination of the weapons, which date from the era of former dictator Moammar Gadhafi, is being hailed as a great success for Libya.
The director of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which helps countries destroy their arsenals, said the eradication of the weapons had been a major undertaking in very challenging circumstances.
