Libya: bishop denounces NATO bombing of food store
July 27, 2011
Libya’s leading prelate--a staunch critic of the NATO military intervention in Libya--has decried the bombing of a food store.
“A few days ago, NATO warplanes hit a food store just outside Tripoli, which contained oil, pasta, tomato sauce,” said Bishop Giovanni Martinelli, the apostolic vicar of Tripoli. “A river of oil came out of the warehouse, which was destroyed. I know they have also hit a social center. By what right does one hit a food center?”
