Of course we’ll be branded “Islamophobic” for even reporting this, but frankly PETA should be outraged by this horrific story.
It’s yet another example of daily life brought to you by the religion of peace, and yes we did check with multiple sources to ensure this was in fact a real story. Because it’s so completely unbelievable.
A pet monkey from one Muslim clan in Libya tugged on a girl’s headscarf – from another clan – sparking FOUR DAYS of deadly violence.
The Globe and Mail reports, At least 16 people died and 50 were wounded in Libya in four days of clashes between rival factions in the southern city of Sabha, a health official said on Sunday.
According to residents and local reports, the latest bout of violence erupted between two tribes after an incident in which a monkey that belonged to a shopkeeper from the Gaddadfa tribe attacked a group of schoolgirls who were passing by.
The monkey pulled off one of the girls’ head scarf, leading men from the Awlad Suleiman tribe to retaliate by killing three people from the Gaddadfa tribe as well as the monkey, according to a resident who spoke to Reuters.
In an updated report, the BBC says, Clan fighting has left at least 20 people dead in the south Libyan town of Sabha after an incident with a monkey, according to local reports.
Casualties may be greater as the death toll is reportedly for the Awlad Suleiman group only.
Reports also suggest tanks, rockets, mortars and other heavy weapons were used in the fighting.
Because of a monkey.
But we shouldn’t be judgmental. After all, we’re the racist haters.
