Turkey Condemns Ship Aattack Asked Libyan Authorities to “prevent such actions”

shAnkara has denounced a fatal attack on a Turkish cargo ship off the coast of Libya, in an indication of how fighting in the North African state risks further drawing in outside powers.

The Turkish foreign ministry said on Monday that the ship, which was carrying building materials, had been attacked by ground artillery fire in international waters about 13 miles off the shore of Tobruk.

It added that when the ship subsequently sought to escape it was hit by two separate airstrikes, which killed a senior crew member.

The ministry added it had asked Libyan authorities to “prevent such actions against Turkish ships and carry out the necessary legal actions against those responsible for the attack”.

In a further reference to forces allied to the Libyan government, it said that the attack was a “new example of the violation of international law of those who bombed civilian infrastructure” – and linked it to the Libyan airforce’s bombing of the rebel-held Tripoli airport in March.

The foreign ministry also called for United Nations Security Council censure of the attack

    At this time it seems like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
