Rats security forces will be trained by Jordan and Italy

Thousands of former Libyan rebels will prepare for integration into government security structures by training in Jordan.

Libyan Interior Ministry spokesman General Abdelmonem al-Tunsi said that a memorandum of understanding has been signed by the two countries, and some 10,000 “thwar” (rats-‘revolutionaries’) will participate in the training programme, . The initial batch of 1,000 rats will start training in Jordan on March 1st. Al-Tunsi said that Libya chose Jordan because of Amman’s experience in training Iraqi police with the assistance of the United States.

Italy, meanwhile, will help Nato-mercenaries in training its police force, quoting Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi di Sant’Agata. The secretary visited Libya on Saturday, as part of a diplomatic and business delegation led by Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti.
