Bishop condemns bombing of Libya
Catholic World News - May 03, 2011
The apostolic vicar of Tripoli has again urged NATO and its allies to suspend the bombing of Libya.
“Yesterday I went to see the house hit by four NATO missiles,” Bishop Giovanni Martinelli said on May 2. “The house was a home in the midst of other civilian houses. I think we are playing too much with the lives of civilians. I want to stress that in this raid children died, too . This makes it increasingly difficult for a peaceful solution, because it stirs up anger.”
“Yesterday, as a result of this raid, people set fire to embassies,” he added. I repeat that bombs do not solve the problems. I wonder if we should suspend the bombing at least to respect the grief of family members.”
