Alexandrian Orthodox Cathedral in Libya Vandalized, Looted

The Cathedral of St. George in Tripoli, Libya, seat of the Alexandrian Orthodox Metropolis of Tripoli, was attacked during the night, with its doors being broken down, the holy vessels from the sanctuary and St. George's relics stolen, the interior vandalized, and the Gospels and vestments likewise stolen. The vandalism and thefts were reported to the police, but no action has been taken. More (in Greek) here.
