AIRCRAFT have been seen flying between Belarus and Libya, raising concerns that Ales Minsk is sending arms to Gaddafi. "An Ilyushin Il-76 (plane) flew to Libya on February 15 from Baranovichi, a huge former Soviet weapon storage (area) now controlled by the Belarus government," said Hugh Griffiths of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), quoting aviation authority sources.
