Bishop in Libya warns against military intervention
Catholic World News - March 08, 2011
Bishop Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, the apostolic vicar of Tripoli, Libya, is pleading for “no further spilling of blood.”
The bishop warned against any outside interference in Libya’s current strife, saying that an attempted military solution would only escalate the violence. He expressed confidence in the prospects for a negotiations solution, saying that the nation’s culture favors bargaining to resolve differences.
