WASHINGTON - The United States believes Libya's stocks of concentrated uranium and mustard agent built up by former ruler Muammar Gaddafi are secure, the US State Department said on Thursday.

The United States monitors the stockpile sites through its "national technical means," a euphemism for spy satellites and other intelligence assets, and was confident they have not been breached, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

The spokeswoman also told reporters Libya no longer has the means to turn the yellowcake into fissile material for bombs.
