  • [World/Regional Conflict] Air Strikes in Lybia May Have Killed al-Qaida Leader

    The US lead airstrikes in the town of Ajdabiya in Lybia Saturday likely killing an al-Qaida leader, Mokhtar BelMokhtar and several others. Mokhtar was responsible for a gas plant attack in 2013 which killed 35 people.

    The U.S. filed terrorism charges in 2013 against BelMokhtar in connection with the Algeria attack. Officials have said they believe he remained a threat to U.S. and Western interests. He is an Algerian in his 40s.
    Funny how they don't mention that there are hundreds of people that live in this town that they attacked and how many of them were effected by the airstrikes. I can only imagine the terror they must have felt as they ran to avoid the bombings and how many of them were innocent women and children.
