Libya's central bank robbed of $55 million note shipment

According to a Reuters article dated 29 October 2013, 10 gunmen intercepted a van carrying $55 million in cash when it left the airport in Sirte on its way to the local central bank branch. No word yet on the notes which were stolen, but in the past other nations have responded to large-scale robberies by issuing notes in new colors or designs to thwart the use of the ill-gotten gains.
