    The father did not commit the bombing. However, I gather he is being held for questioning. Does anybody know if he's been charged with any crime? Or do we feel comfortable in inferring guilt by association?

    Can't tell if this is a willful dilution of the world into simplistic terms or if this is really how you think...

    Either way it's the reality in which we all live. So just pick one.

    Arrested in Libya by a militia group. BBC, I think.

    Aiding and abetting a known felon. Have you heard of it?

    A legal doctrine related to the guilt of someone who aids or abets in the commission of a crime. It exists in a number of different countries and generally allows a court to pronounce someone guilty for aiding and abetting in a crime even if they are not the principal offender.

    He appears to have been arrested in a country with no legal system...

    In what way did he aid and abet? The only thing I heard is that he took his family out of the UK to get his son out of trouble (UK gang-related activity) and then in Libya he gave his son his passport back for a pilgrimage. I know it would nice with the immigrants-are-all-evil-people-who-stroke-white-cats narrative, but I haven't heard of any allegation against the father. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Appears both father and son were with the Manchester Boys, a "rebel" group fighting Qaddafi.
    But no report of aiding and abetting.

    Not saying that article is wrong, but Pilger is a bit fishy.

    Ah the old right wing attitude of you can insult others but nobody can insult you. Nice.

    Do they teach Peace and Love in these Mosques?

    I may have to go and find out myself, and tell them they may miss out on Heaven if they kill.

    They need to preach Peace and Love.

    Is anybody watching the benefit concert in Manchester? Amazing what has been organised in such a short space of time.

    Shame on the Gallagher bothers that they didn't unite for Manchester.
