The Libyan Scholars Association has denounced - in a statement on Sunday - linking the Libyan cleric Abdelbasit Ghweila, with the Manchester Arena attack that took place on May 22.

The association said that it decries the radicalism and terrorism accusations directed at Ghweila, who himself is part of many organizations that advocate for peace and tolerance and renounce radicalism and extremism.

It also called on media outlets and news operators to be professional and honest when they publicize any story.
