Bishop of Tripoli decries NATO bombing attacks, cites civilian casualties

CWN - June 03, 2011

“Bombs are becoming our Calvary,” says Bishop Martinelli, who has released repeated appeals for an end to the NATO military campaign. Denouncing the use of bombing raids, he calls urgently for negotiations to bring a peaceful end to the nation’s conflict.
