Forty-five Libyan non-governmental organizations, including Solidarity for Human Rights, condemned statements made by the Interior Minister Fathi Pashaga, in which he described the perpetrators of the Foreign Ministry's attack of being "dark-skinned."

The organizations considered in a joint statement on Friday that the statements of Pashaghaga is contrary to the international obligations ratified by Libya, which prohibits racial discrimination between people, demanding him to apologize for these racists comments.

The organizations warned against such a discourse in the multi-ethnic Libyan society.

“As terrorism has no religion, it also has no colour, no race or sex,” the statement stressed.
