LIBYA UNCOVERS DESERT TERROR CAMP: REPORT

PARIS - Libyan secret services have discovered a desert operations camp belonging to a hardline Algerian Islamic militant group linked to Al-Qaeda, the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche said on Sunday.

The report, if true, will fuel US concerns that Islamic militants are seeking new havens in the inhospitable terrain of the Sahara desert, seen as a potentially rich recruiting ground because of weak national governance and lax border patrols.

The GSPC camp was found 10 days ago in the mountainous region of Tibesti, which spans Libya's southern border with Chad, the report said, quoting a source close to the counter-espionage services of a European country. -- Reuters

They face a maximum sentence of seven years' jail. -- AFP
