BREAKING: Prominent American Activist Shot By Sniper Fire in Tripoli, Internet Cut


Activist Post

The Palestine Civil Rights Campaign-Lebanon confirms reports that Franklin Lamb was shot at approximately 11:45 a.m. on Sunday August 21 in Tripoli, Libya outside of the Corinthia Hotel where he has been staying.

Franklin P. Lamb, LLM,PhD is the Director of Americans Concerned for Middle East Peace, Wash.DC-Beirut. Lamb is doing research as a board member for the Palestine Civil Rights Campaign-Lebanon in Libya.

Lamb has covered the unfolding situation in Libya as a contributing writer to this website and many others.
PCRC tells Activist Post that Franklin had just returned from a 90 minute bicycle tour of central Tripoli and was walking past the hotel swimming pool when he was hit in his right leg.

Witnesses report having seen sniper fire coming from the roof of the Marriott Hotel across from the Corinthia.

Franklin is reportedly doing well. The bullet has been removed and he is resting comfortably.  PCRC said Lamb wishes that no one be concerned and that he will be fine.

It’s unclear whether Lamb was targeted for his highly-critical reporting of NATO as the aggressor in Libya.

It’s also reported that Internet has been cut in Tripoli, so reports are likely to be delayed inside Libya.

This article includes direct quotes from an email sent to Activist Post by Lamb’s associates.

    Wish all the pawn realized the Impostor behind all the screen, To the Libyan people, make a secret pact between rebel and ghadaffi, dont fight among yourself, just acting only like you are fighting, but dont let the Nato involve and bomb your beautiful people and country, the Impostor just want to see the chaos, so just play the acting and let fool the Impostor once and for all.
