Militants Party At The Pool Of Abandoned U.S. Embassy In Libya

Now here’s the Islamist militia’s version of a pool party.

Dawn of Libya, a group of Islamist militia in Libya says it has "secured" an abandoned diplomatic compound in the country’s capital, Tripoli from another rival militia group. The victorious event obviously called for a party and so it was.

The video shows the boys having a merry time on the  grounds of the compound with the main attraction being its swimming pool.

The building was evacuated in July when the US Government called back all the American diplomats from the area amid increased fighting in the area.

However, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones was adamant that the compound was safe.

We can’t really blame the boys for a bit of poolside fun in the desert heat that generally exceeds 100 degrees during the day.
