Saving Libya's heritage
Opinion, The Hindu, Dec. 7, 2011

The survival of Libya's most important heritage structures, amidst the
tremendous losses inflicted on life and property by brutal conflict, has brought
a sense of relief. However, the organised looting of some of Libya's treasures
has raised serious concerns about the implementation of international
conventions that are meant to protect monuments and curb trafficking in
antiquities. Ever since the armed uprising and NATO bombing commenced, concerns
have been expressed over the state of Libya's rich historical heritage,
including Greek and Roman antiquities
