Libya allocated Olympic tickets

Libya has been allocated tickets to the London 2012 Olympic Games, organisers confirmed. The country's National Olympic Committee has been given "a few hundred" passes to the event. A London 2012 spokeswoman said: "The Libyan NOC, not an person, has been allocated a few hundred tickets which they are in charge for distributing to sports organisations and athletes inside their country."

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's son Muhammad al-Gaddafi is leader of the country's Olympic committee which will hand out the tickets. Britain is now part of Nato military action against Libya, and Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir David Richards said today we can sustain it for "as long as we choose to". Around one million of the total 8.8 million tickets offered to the London Games were allocated to federations in overseas countries.
