US delivers 120,000 meals to Libyan rebels

"To date, we have delivered 10,000 cases of Halal ready-to-eat meals (120,000 meals) and we are currently in the coordination and consolidation process regarding additional non-lethal aid, to include items such as medical supplies, tents, uniforms, personnel equipment, sandbags, HESCOs (to construct barriers), and protective vests, which will be delivered in the coming weeks," Pentagon spokesman Col Dave Lapan said.

The non-lethal aid supplies are being consolidated from sources all over the US and abroad, Lapan said.

The United States is supporting a NATO-led air campaign designed to protect civilians against Kadhafi's regime.
