More headlines from The Libya Herald.

Here’s a run down of some of the stories/incidents from July up to the 24th, and in the two or so weeks since then we’ve had (and this is surely not a comprehensive round up):

Eid marked in Benghazi with attack on shops

Car explosion in Benghazi – civilian driver killed

Another car bomb in Benghazi

Benghazi police station bombed again

Military commander killed by car-bomb – sons survive

One dead and three injured in latest Benghazi car-bomb attacks

Dual bombings in Benghazi confirmed

Two more assassinations in Benghazi

So then: peace, stability and democracy clearly flourishing.

Number of BBC News Online articles mentioning ‘Libya’ and ‘Car Bomb’ in the same period: precisely 0, according to my search.

You’d think – given the fact the U.K. was at the forefront of arming, training and directing the rebel militias, and bombing the incumbent regime (and much else besides, including journalists, food warehouses, schools, colleges and civilians – p.43) out of power – that what is happening in Libya now would be of serious interest to state-corporate media. The current situation is in no small part a result of the actions of the government that they are supposed to hold to account.

But apparently not. Although maybe they’ll get interested again when there’s an election afoot, and they can tell us all how great it is that Libyans now have democracy, all thanks to NATO.
