BENGHAZI - Headstones on World War Two military graves in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi have been desecrated again, a local official said on Saturday, in the second such attack in four months.

Khaled Al-Jazwi, a spokesman for the Benghazi local council, said the attack occurred on Thursday.

"We don't know yet who did this," said Jazwi. "We have spoken to the local council's security committee about investigating who is behind this. This cemetery has been here for decades and nothing like this has ever happened before."
