Christian leaders have spoken of the need for healing and reconciliation in Libya following the killing of former leader Moammar Gadhafi by revolutionaries, according to Christian Today. Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, secretary general of the World Evangelical Alliance, said the day would be remembered with "sadness" by those close to Gadhafi while others would be thinking about those who "deeply suffered under his oppressive regime." Tunnicliffe said, "It is our prayer that the hostilities will now come to an end and that the Libyan people will begin a process of reconciliation and building a new society that will be founded upon human rights, including religious freedom, for all." Gordon Showell-Rogers, associate secretary general of the WEA, urged Christians to pray for Libya and added, "Our prayer is that this new chapter will be better for all Libya's people."
