The Guardian has done a bit of datamining at one of The European Union's sites and discovered some rather interesting facts revealing how much money various members of the European arms industry have earned by selling weapons to Gadaffi.
Below are some key revelations:
The EU granted export licenses for €834.5m worth of arms exports in the first five years after the arms embargo was lifted in October 2004
2009 is the highest amount ever: €343.7m
Italy is the top exporter, with €276.7m over the five years
The UK got off to a big start in 2005, with €58.9m of the €72.2m total.
UK licenses over the five years are worth €119.35m
Malta saw some €79.7m of guns go through the Island en route to Libya in 2009 - apparently sold via an Italian company.
