According to the BBC’s evening programme, Newsnight, Salman Abedi (author of the Manchester attack) and his father, (Ramadan Abedi, an MI6 agent), took part in bringing down the state of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.

Ever since the Lancaster House agreements, the United Kingdom and France have been committed to toppling the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya as well as its Guide, Muammar Gaddafi. At the beginning, the Nato coordinated operation, was supporting on the ground exclusively by the Al-Qaeda troops; then later on by the Misratas tribe.

Ramadan Abedi, a former Libyan intelligence official, had been sent back to Libya by the MI6 to participate in the operation on the side of Al-Qaeda [1]. His son, Salman, then aged 16, fought on Libya’s side.
