Germany lends Libyan rebels EUR 100 M

Germany announced Sunday it has agreed to lend EUR 100 M to the rebels in Libya for “civilian and humanitarian purposes” des­pite staying out of NATO’s bom­bing campaign against Libyan government forces, CNN said. Germany had previously announ­ced a loan of USD 10 M for humanitarian aid to the Transitio­nal National Council, the rebel movement that is battling to unseat longtime Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. Germa­ny has not participated in the NATO-led military effort in Li­bya and abstained from the U.N. Security Council vote that authorized military action to protect civilians from Gadhafi’s forces.
