DiManno: Everybody has a horrific tale to share on this ambulance ship

Published 1 hour 7 minutes ago

BENGHAZI, LIBYAThe injuries are horrendous: A hole in the centre of a face where the nose had been, limbs blown off, shredded torsos held together with staples and bandages, a childs cheeks blackened and pockmarked by shrapnel.

Yet these poor people the medically evacuated casualties of Misurata are the less critical cases, the limping and wheelchair-pushed and stretcher-borne wounded extracted by sea from a city being hammered into submission by Moammar Gadhafis merciless forces.

Those worse off, immobile or tethered to critical care machines or simply diagnosed as doomed, were left behind, a thousand more whod pressed forward at the dock, pleading, who could only watch salvation sail away.


This is the carnage of Gadhafis war on his own citizens, the vengeance inflicted on a city that dared to claim itself liberated from a madmans iron fist.

Soldiers, civilians, its all the same to him, says Mustafa Abdellah, who lost his lower left leg in a shelling attack seven days earlier. Gadhafi is an animal. Who else would do this to his own people?

In Misurata, all people can do is pray for this hell to end. I thank God to have been brought away but so many remain trapped. Please, please help them. Gadhafi is destroying the whole city.
