UPDATE ON LATEST VANDAL ATTACK ON LIBYAN WAR GRAVES

Reports last week of further vandalism attacks at a war cemetery in Benghazi, Libya have now been investigated. The damage has been confirmed at the Benghazi British Military Cemetery, not the Benghazi War Cemetery, as initially reported.

There are no Australian graves in the Benghazi British Military Cemetery.

The damaged headstone at the British Military Cemetery was that of a British citizen. This cemetery was also damaged in the same attacks that affected the Benghazi War Cemetery in February.
