Christians reported safe as Tripoli falls to Islamist militias
Catholic World News - September 02, 2014
Three years after NATO intervention helped bring about the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya’s capital has fallen under the control of Islamist militias.
“So far, as a Christian community, we have had no trouble,” Bishop Giovanni Martinelli, the apostolic vicar of Tripoli, told the Fides news agency. “Our people, although few in numbers, come to church; we are still able to experience the joy of coming together.”
