‘A key committee in Libya’s parliament has condemned Boris Johnson for joking about “dead bodies” preventing the country’s business growth.
The Foreign Secretary was widely criticised for controversially suggesting that the Libyan city of Sirte only had to “clear the dead bodies” before it could become the next Dubai.
He was speaking at a fringe event at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester.
The Libyan House of Representatives’ foreign affairs committee demanded an apology from Theresa May over the “unacceptable” comments.
“The committee demands a clarification from the British Prime Minister and an apology to the Libyan people,” it said in a statement.’
