Iran condemns terrorist attacks in Libya

The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday condemned the recent terrorist actions in the Libyan cities of Tripoli and Benghazi, which led to the death and injury of a number of citizens.
Such violent acts at a time when the Libyan people have successfully held their first free election and started a movement toward democracy through establishing the General National Congress is “inhuman” and serve the interests of the enemies of Islam, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said.

According to the Guardian, Libyan security officials have arrested 32 members of an organized network of Gaddafi loyalists linked to bombing attacks in Tripoli on the eve of the anniversary of the fall of the city to rebel fighters.

Three car bombs exploded near interior ministry and security buildings in the Libyan capital, killing two people on Sunday. They were the first fatal attacks of their kind since a revolt led to Gaddafi’s overthrow and death last year after 42 years in power.
