Fal's in libya

In recent news videos, I've noteced Libyan rebels armed with new looking FAL rifles . Some of the FALS seam to have Leupold mk4s on them. Any info on these?

I noticed the same thing about the pictures from libya, just about everyone was carrying an FN/FAL.

Out of all of the images from Libya, I do not remember seeing a single M-16, only a few AKs, and mostly FN/FALs.

I was kinda drooling over the pic of the guys cleaning the 14.5 rounds.

As for FALs in Libya, many African nations were and still are big FAL users. No doubt Libya purchased many of them from other African nations as part of Qaddafi's strategy of getting in close with several other non arab African nations.
