An estimated 2,000 Soviet military advisers and personnel have arrived in Libya during the last few days to operate Soviet SAM-5 anti-aircraft missiles, the Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram said. In an unattributed report under a Tripoli, Libya, dateline, the paper said the missiles, provided to Col. Moammar Kadafi's regime, are deployed at seven bases under Soviet control. The Soviet experts "receive their orders directly from Moscow," Al Ahram said, and "Libyans are banned from entering those bases."
