US Embassy in Libya has expressed concern over the killing of Lawyer and Human Rights Activist Hanan Al Bar'asi in Benghazi on Tuesday, saying there should be no excuse for stifling the voices of peaceful activists. 'We repeat our strong commitment to allowing all Libyans, including women and the youth, to express their views regarding the future of their country, the Embassy said in a statement posted to its SMS page. 'As Libyans of all political spectrum meet in Tunis, this despicable crime underscored the importance of putting in place a government that is responsible before the people of Libya, instead of allowing corruption and abusive powers to dictate it', the statement said. It called on Libyan authorities to open an enquiry into this murder crime and bring the culprits to justice.
