CAIRO (Reuters) - Libya's Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni said on Sunday Qatar had sent three military planes loaded with weapons and ammunition to a Tripoli airport controlled by an armed opposition group.

"Unfortunately they (the planes) reached (Tripoli) Matiga airport," he told UAE-based Arab TV channel Sky News. "We will consider... breaking off relations if this interference into Libya's internal affairs continued."
