Daily Telegraph, 26 November 96

THE Libyan leader, Col Muammar Gaddafi, is expected to have weapons of mass destruction capable of hitting targets in Britain and most other Nato countries within 10 years according to an intelligence estimate drawn-up by the alliance.

The Madrid newspaper, El Mundo, yesterday claimed to have seen a top secret document which forecast that the Libyan dictator would have missiles with a range of 1,900 miles, capable of carrying nuclear, chemical or germ warheads by the year 2006. Such weapons could reach targets inside all Nato's European member countries in addition to Israel.
