Tripoli, 8 January 2015:
The Libyan . . .[restrict]government has condemned Wednesday’s terrorist attack on the Paris offices of French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, saying that it is with France in the “war on terror and terrorist elements”.
In a statement it said that the murder of the 12 people killed in the attack was contrary to the “true Islamic faith”, which speaks against revenge and the targeting of civilians. “Islam is not a message of terror, nor does it invite its followers to commit terrorist acts,” the statement added.
It also called for the international community to cooperate in the global battle against the terrorist threats that are currently “rocking” the world.
The government went on to say that it would fight against terrorism in any place and in any form and that just like France, it faced a similar threat within its own borders.
“It is important that our two countries work together as we fight against these threats,” the statement said. [/restrict]
