Islamist militias ‘manage everything’ in Benghazi, says prelate

Catholic World News - July 21, 2014

In Benghazi, the nation’s 2nd-largest city, Islamist militias continue to “manage everything,” as they have since NATO’s 2011 military intervention helped lead to the fall of the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, according to the prelate.
