British War Graves Smashed in Libya A furious mob desecrated dozens of Commonwealth War Graves in a Libyan cemetery on Friday 24th Feb 2012, amid continuing fury over the burning of the Quran by U.S. soldiers. Headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across the Benghazi Military Cemetery.Last year, according to the Independent, the British Government spent an estimated £3 million pounds per-day, assisting the Libyan rebels to overthrow Colonel Gaddaffi, as British Prime Minister David Cameron stated, "I am proud of the role that Britain has played in helping them to bring that about and I pay tribute to the bravery of the Libyans who helped to liberate their country".
Up-to now, the British Government have remained silent over the actions in the Benghazi Cemetery.
