Well, there has been in recent years a large number of people from sub-Saharan Africa going to work as migrants quite often illegally to seek work. I don't know exactly when that dates from, but there has been a considerable population of people from sub-Saharan Africa in Libya as essentially economic migrants certainly for the last 15 or 20 years and maybe a bit before that. But what I was referring to with the Liberians and Sierra Leoneans and some others was something rather different, which is relatively small numbers of people going to Libya perhaps with some financial sponsorship from the Libyan authorities for ideological, political or military training and that is not the same thing.
