  1. This is ridiculous this shows that now the situation in Libya i think these incidents will continue until Libyan government fell down international community should think on Libya how to solve this problem and surrounding countries of Libya have to try to solve this problem mainly the government immediately resign and put elections.

  2. These murders says presents situation in Libya so foreigners have to plea their countries immediately to save their lives neighbouring countries of Libya also think how this problem will solved? all the countries have to pressure on UNO to end this problem as immediately as possible with this they can save so many lives.
