Libya: Tripoli Vicar, People are Worn Out

"Please, Father, let's put an end to war and bombs. They have destroyed our family, upset our social life, children no longer go to school. We are shocked", dozen of Libyan Muslim women told Tripoli's vicar-apostolic . He declared to Vatican agency Fides: "For the first time in 40 years of celebrations in Libya, women came to church in tears.

Monsignor Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli told Fides that "a form of diplomacy which respects the Libyan situation" is necessary.

"I appreciated - he added - the position of the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa which, in their latest meeting, rejected the use of force and reiterated that a diplomatic solution to Libya's crisis is needed)". "I believe this is wise - he concluded - because it favours diplomatic action over the use of force". . .
