There is a sense of outrage in America about this senseless killing, but it is a wasted effort. Until the Libyans that supposedly supported this school and young man, show outrage towards the militant groups that condone this act, nothing is going to change in their country. I was suggest that if you are an American traveling to any country around the world, that you are going to be a target. Is there a solution to this? Sure is; and it's obvious.

It takes a brave soul to go into an area that is not safe and try to help young people achieve. I do agree with the above comment, that the people need to start feeling outrage towards the militias and terrorists that cause it.

comment229, you will not get much outrage in libya. Non-muslims are 2nd class citizens and oppressed in libya which the vast majority of libyans support. Given that climate, killings like this are inevitable.

People of the 7th century do not want people speaking of the 22nd century! Fascism is strong and well in the middle east. Turning a blind eye to hatred.
