Small-missile advisers from US arrive in Chad

Three US advisers arrived in Chad. They will train French technicians in the use of American shoulder-held missiles sent to bolster Chad's defenses against reported Libyan air attacks, Pentagon officials said. The French are to train Chadian troops, they said. At the United Nations, the Security Council agreed to an immediate meeting to debate the Libyan air attacks on Chad.

Meanwhile, Libya warned that its Air Force would attack the US aircraft carrier Eisenhower if it entered the Gulf of Sidra, which Libya claims as its own territorial waters.

US defense officials said Tuesday that two US Navy F-14 planes from the Eisenhower had a confrontation with two Libyan jets over the gulf.
