UK Ambassador Visits Benghazi

During his visit to Benghazi last week, Peter Millett laid a wreath at the Commonwealth War Cemetery that was vandalised by Islamic militamen.   He also confirmed that Britain is giving more than a £1 Million to train Explosive Ordnance Disposal operators and paramedics in the east of Libya; an example of the United Kingdom’s equal commitment “to all of Libya”.

See Chapter 6 of Belfast to Benghazi for the story of the attack on the cemetery and the background to the de-mining programme, which we set up in 2012.
