BENGHAZI, Libya - Libyan rebels are in talks to obtain weapons from "friendly" countries and expect they will be able to get them, a rebel spokesman said on Wednesday.




Rebels fighting to oust Muammar Gaddafi say they need more heavy weapons to take on the Libyan leader's better-armed and trained forces.




"I don't think there will be a problem getting weapons," national council spokesman Abdel Hafiz Ghoga told reporters in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.




The insurgents had asked countries that recognized the council as Libya's legitimate representative for arms, he said.
