Libya yesterday executed six senior officers and two civilians convicted of spying using equipment supplied by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Libyan state-run radio reported.

Reporting the convictions by Libya's Supreme Military Court on Wednesday, the state-controlled Libyan television said: "The agent-spies ... supplied agents of foreign governments with information relating to the country's defence secrets, for espionage purposes, by exploiting their membership of the Libyan army."
