HRW reports abuses against civilians in Libya

6 years ago22 views

Rights groups have accused both Muammar Gaddafi's forces and his opponents of abuses against civilian detainees in Libya.

The charred remains of 53 people have been found in a warehouse in Tripoli. Witnesses say they were shot dead and set alight by Gaddafi forces.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) says it has strong evidence suggesting government forces went on a spate of arbitrary killing as Tripoli was falling.

Sidney Kwiram from HRW has been working in Libya. She spoke to Al Jazeera about the abuses against civilians.
