Sudan gave weapons, ammunition and other assistance to the former Libyan rebels who overthrew Muammar Gaddafi, a response to the slain leader's support for Sudan's own insurgencies, President Omar al-Bashir said on Wednesday.
Sudan, which shares a border with Libya, has accused Gaddafi of supporting rebellions in its western Darfur region and in South Sudan, which declared independence in July.
"You all know the role Libya played in destabilising Sudan and Sudan's security," Bashir told an audience in the eastern city of Kassala.
"Your support, whether it was humanitarian support, or weapons or ammunition, reached Libyan revolutionaries in Misrata, in the Western Mountains, in Benghazi, in Kufra," Bashir said.
"The forces that entered Tripoli, part of their armament and their capabilities is 100 percent Sudanese." He did not give details about what weapons were provided or how many.
