Tripoli, 9 August 2013:
The entire Ramadan charity collection was stolen early on Thursday morning from a Benghazi mosque.
Five . . .[restrict]collection boxes, in which worshippers had been placing their Zakat offerings throughout the holy month, were smashed open at the Abdullah bin Jaafar Mosque in Abuhadeema.
Mosque officials said that it was impossible to know how much was taken by the thieves, who are thought to have broken into the building at around about 2am yesterday. All Libyans have been urged to give a minimum of LD 2 for each member of their family, these charitable donations then being distributed to the poor. All Zakat offerings should have be made before the start of Eid.
