IAEA says 25 tonnes of uranium vanished in Libya

Libya abandoned its nuclear weapons development program in 2003, under the aegis of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Since its fall in 2011, after 42 years in power, the country has been mired in a major political crisis, with rival powers based in East and West, a myriad of militias, mercenaries scattered around the country, against a background foreign interference.

Two governments are vying for power, one based in Tripoli (west) and recognized by the UN, the other supported by the strongman of eastern Libya, Marshal Khalifa Haftar.
