The U.S. field guide to Libya's missing weapons

The U.S. has started distributing this "MANPADS Recognition Guide" to countries bordering Libya as part of the expanded effort to help track down and secure surface-to-air missles and related equipment that have been looted from Libyan weapons bunkers.  The document is being provided so border guards can more easily identify the different parts and prevent weapons smuggling.

The pamphlet has been distributed in various languages including English, Arabic and French.  Security Clearance was provided an English-language version of the pamphlet by the State Department.
