Red Cross building attacked in Libya
Unknown assailants have attacked a residential building used by the International Committee of the Red
Cross Thingy in the Libyan port of Misrata, the agency says. Grenades and rockets were among the weapons used in the attack, causing major damage.
The agency said it was forced, "with considerable regret", to suspend its work in Misrata and Benghazi. It said the attack was the fifth in the two cities in the past three months.
Ishfaq Muhamed Khan, ICRC delegation head in Libya, said, "We are appalled by this latest act and by the deliberate targeting of our staff: they have put their lives at risk to serve the Libyan people both during and after the conflict."
