Reuters reports a Libyan opposition spokesman in Benghazi saying Qatar and other countries have offered to help rebels obtain weapons.

Rebels still composed mostly of untrained civilians, but their equipment and weapons are improving and their organization a bit better

Got bombed today by Gaddafi. First the pilot hit Brega, then he swung around for us, CNN, and all the gun-toting rebels on the highway.
