UNITED NATIONS — The United States on Thursday raised allegations that Moamer Kadhafi’s regime gives viagra to troops to carry out rapes as the UN Security Council wrangled over coalition attacks in Libya, diplomats said.

Russia and other nations have argued that France, Britain, the United States and their allies patrolling a no-fly zone over Libya are going beyond the mandate given by UN Security Council resolutions.

But the United States insisted that coalition actions were within the resolutions. US ambassador Susan Rice highlighted the use of viagra in the closed-door meeting as the debate intensified, according to diplomats present.

Rice said Kadhafi’s forces were “issuing viagra to soldiers so that they go out and rape,” said one diplomat at the meeting.

The ambassador did not give sources for the allegations. But another diplomat at the meeting said she made the comment as part of a debate with another envoy to highlight that “the coalition is confronting an adversary doing reprehensible things.”

The US mission did not immediately comment on the claims.

Allegations of viagra being given to Kadhafi forces have been aired in British tabloid newspapers. A doctor in the Libyan city of Ajdabiya said last month that Kadhafi troops had been given viagra and condoms as part of a campaign of sexual violence.
