NATO’s ‘new’ Libya, Egyptian Christians in danger

This 29 March 2013 video says about itself:

A number of women in an aid convoy are said to be in “very bad shape” after allegedly being attacked by pro-government militiamen.

Three British women travelling in an aid convoy were raped after being kidnapped in Benghazi, Libyan authorities say.

Two of the women, who are of Pakistani origin, were travelling with two male companions on their way to the airport when they were snatched by pro-government militiamen.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Egypt fears for workers after attack

Sunday 4th January 2015

EGYPT urged its citizens working in Libya today to stay indoors until they could be brought home, after the kidnapping of 13 Coptic Christians in the city of Sirte.

Members of an Islamist militia stormed a residential compound on Saturday “with a list of full names of Christians in the building,” according to eyewitness Hanna Aziz. They separated Muslims from Christians, handcuffed the latter and drove off with them.

“I am still in my room waiting for them to take me. I want to die with them,” Mr Aziz said. Islamist extremist militias have controlled swathes of Libya since 2011, when Nato intervention helped them to topple the Gadaffi regime, and have carried out a string of massacres of Christians.

Other common targets of these militias include journalists, “improperly” dressed women and Gadaffi loyalists.
