Libya

A favorite target of the Islamic radical militias has been the small Christian community. Most of the 100,000 Christians who were in Libya two years ago are gone, fleeing growing crime and persecution... Many militias are basically local self-defense groups, but even some of these see no problem in plundering nearby areas they don’t control.  source: http://www.strategypage.com/qnd/libya/articles/20130212.aspx

More than 150 graves... were smashed or desecrated last year by a mob of Islamist extremists who invaded the Commonwealth war cemetery in Benghazi. Months later, the cemetery was attacked again, wreaking further destruction to the graves and memorial crosses... Nobody has been brought to justice for the destruction of the war graves... Radical Islamists have attacked Coptic and Orthodox churches, assaulted priests, fired grenades at Red Cross offices that were accused of proselytizing and destroyed dozens of shrines of the Sufi sect of Islam. Under the influence of the same ideology, Libyan military authorities arrested more than 50 Egyptian Copts and other foreign Christians in Benghazi on suspicion of proselytizing or distributing Christian pamphlets. This year alone, a Coptic church in Misrata was bombed, killing two Egyptian Christians, and a Coptic church in Benghazi was torched, nearly killing its priest. source: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/lone-guard-at-canadians-libyan-gravesite-no-match-for-islamist-mobs/article11102968/
