Libya allocated Olympic tickets
Libya has been allocated tickets to the London 2012 Olympic Games, organisers have confirmed.
The country's National Olympic Committee (NOC) has been given "a few hundred" passes to the event.
A London 2012 spokeswoman said: "The Libyan NOC, not an individual, has been allocated a few hundred tickets which they are responsible for distributing to sports organisations and athletes within their country."
Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's son Muhammad al-Gaddafi is head of the country's Olympic committee which will hand out the tickets.
Britain is currently part of Nato military action against Libya.
Around one million of the total 8.8 million tickets available to the London Games were allocated to federations in foreign countries.
The Daily Telegraph reported that Zimbabwe and Burma have also received tickets.
It said that Colonel Gaddafi will not be allowed to travel to the Games because he is under an international travel ban and arrest warrant.
According to the newspaper, the International Olympic Committee said an NOC would only be excluded from ticket allocations if it were "not able to function any more because of government interference".
It quoted a senior government source as saying: "There is consternation about the fact that country teams are entitled to invite their heads of state, meaning that Gaddafi, whom we are desperately trying to bomb into oblivion, could try to disrupt the Games."
