Bishop sees impasse in Libya
April 11, 2011
The apostolic vicar of Tripoli says that Libyan rebels and forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi are deadlocked in their military struggle.
“A military impasse has been created, and it seems that neither side can prevail over the other,” Bishop Giovanni Martinelli said on April 9. “So I am pleased that there are still diplomatic initiatives, particularly this one by Turkey. I think the Turkish attempt should be supported, and that this kind of initiative should not be discouraged, because it is the only possible way to bring peace.”
