Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi has acknowledged the rightful demands of families of Islamist prisoners held without trial, stressing however, that any attempt to re-ignite violence in Tripoli would not be tolerated.The protesters brandished banners warning politicians and security officials against the consequences of "persecuting the Sunnis," which they said "is pushing the organization into engaging in an open-ended confrontation (with security forces)".In his iftar address, Rifi stressed that the government was seeking to consolidate Tripoli's security and stability, by reinforcing the security plan with economic development projects expected to be launched in the near future.
