World War Two graves in Libya desecrated againMeanwhile, the press in this country spends its time focusing our attention on the actions of a handful of Mormons who lived 150 years ago ...
Benghazi, Libya (Reuters) - Headstones on World War Two military graves in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi have been desecrated again, a local official said on Saturday, in the second such attack in four months.
Earlier this year, Libya's leadership apologised after armed men in Benghazi smashed the graves of British and Italian troops killed during World War Two, in an act of vandalism that bore the hallmarks of radical Islamists.
In February, amateur video footage posted on social networking site Facebook showed men casually kicking over headstones in a war cemetery and using sledgehammers to smash a metal and stone cross.
Benghazi is near where British and Commonwealth troops fought heavy battles against German and Italian forces during the 1939-45 war.
Security experts say the area around the city is host to a number of Islamist militant groups opposed to any Western presence in Muslim countries. [link]
Muslims. Ever think about how much better a world ours would be without them?
