Sectarian attack in Libya

It should be noted that Islamist sectarianism has been denounced by the Libyan government as it attempts to assert authority:
Government officials condemned the demolition of the large Sha'ab mosque and blamed an armed group who, they said, considered its graves and shrines to Sufi figures un-Islamic.
It was the second razing of a Sufi site in two days. Ultra-conservative Islamists wrecked Sufi shrines with bombs and another bulldozer and set fire to a mosque library in the city of Zlitan in the early hours of Friday, an official said.
Additional details and photographs of the destruction can be found at the NBC report.
