Foreign Secretary William Hague condemns yesterday’s terrorist attack in Benghazi and offers continued UK assistance to Libya.
Speaking today Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
I condemn in the strongest possible terms yesterday’s cowardly attack in Benghazi, which killed and injured innocent people, and express my strong solidarity with all the Libyan people in the face of this appalling terrorism. My thoughts and condolences are with the families of the victims at this very difficult time.
Two years ago the people of Benghazi bravely stood against Qadhafi in pursuit of a peaceful and prosperous future for themselves and their children. The UK will continue to support the Libyan people, Congress and Government through this challenging time and continue to assist them as they seek to build a secure, stable and democratic country.
