      Britain 'Mentoring, Not Training' Libya Rebels

      Britain has provided Libyan rebels with military advisers and body armor, but insists that it is not training the rebels or arming them. “We have been very clear that this is mentoring, not training,” said Defense Secretary Liam Fox.

      The British “mentoring” aims to help rebels organize and improve their communication, which is “vital... to their ability to help protect the civilian population better,” said Fox.
