The Libyan government strongly condemned the brutal killing of 26 Bangladeshi nationals in Libya and promised to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Libya termed the killing as ‘cowardly act’ and conveyed deep sympathy to the families of the victims and the government of Bangladesh.

In a message of condolence, the Libyan Foreign Ministry, according to a press release of Bangladesh Foreign Ministry in Dhaka yesterday, said that the steps taken by the Libyan government will be shared with the families of the victims and the government of Bangladesh.

Earlier, Bangladesh had communicated with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) to bring the bodies back but the victims were buried in Libya.
