Tripoli, 13 March 2014:
Three rare-breed black camels, believed to have been owned by Qaddafi, have been flown to . . .[restrict]the UAE.
The three camels were spotted on Monday by staff loading a cargo plane operated by UAE airline Emirates, an airport source told the Libya Herald.
They are believed to have come from a farm formerly owned by Qaddafi located near the Airport Road, the source said. He added that such rare camels were highly-valued in the Gulf states, and could command high prices.
It is not known whether the camels were being sent as a gift or whether they had been purchased. [/restrict]
