Al Qaeda Terror Group: We 'Benefit From' Libyan Weapons


To the east of Libya, smuggled surface-to-air missiles are so ubiquitous in Egypt that the black market price for one has actually dropped by more than 50 percent, according to a report by The Washington Post. To its south, Nigerian forces said they had clashed with a heavily-armed convoy heading out of Libya and seized heavy machine guns and rockets they were carrying, the BBC reported. AQIM is primarily based in the north African region to Libya's west.

ABC News' Brian Ross and Matthew Cole contributed to this report.
