Italian FM: Benghazi attack 'attempt to destabilize Libya'

Published: 01.14.13, 00:20 / Israel News

Libya plans to create a special force to protect diplomats, government sources said, after a gun attack on an Italian consul exposed the precarious security situation in the North African state. Unidentified gunmen in Benghazi opened fire on Italian envoy Guido De Sanctis's armored car on Saturday, but the diplomat escaped unscathed.


Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said Saturday's attack was "an attempt to destabilize the institutions of the new Libya. Italy expresses its strongest condemnation and reaffirms its total support of the democratic path and the reforms that the Tripoli authorities have started," he said in a statement. (Reuters)
