The Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) is to receive bombs for F-16 fighter aircraft from the Netherlands to attack ground targets in Libya.

The Radio Netherlands Worldwide quoted deputy armed forces commander Vice-Admiral Wim Nagtegaal as saying the Netherlands was selling dozens of bombs to Denmark.

The commander, however, could not specify the amount involved in the delivery, which is expected to execute in one or two weeks.

The delivery forms part of the Netherlands’ plans to enforce the UN arms embargo against Libya.
