Libya: Gadhafi Regime Recruiting Tuareg Youth From Mali, Niger To Fight

Hundreds of Tuareg youths from Mali and Niger, including former rebels, are being recruited by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to fight off the popular uprising in the country, a development that worries many local officials, President of the Regional Assembly of Kidal Abdou Salam Ag Assalat said March 1, AFP reported. According to Assalat, authorities have tried to dissuade the youths from leaving, but the promise of guns and money is difficult for the youth to resist. Some make the trip to Libya by air from Chad, while others go by road, Assalat added.
