Written by on September 28, 2022

A leading rights group campaigning against torture says that law enforcement agents and militias in Libya killed at least 581 civilians between the start of 2020 and March this year.

According to the World Organisation Against Torture the number of those killed includes people executed in detention facilities or tortured to death.

The report is the first to focus on extrajudicial killings in Libya and is based on a two-year investigation carried out by Libyan civil society organisations, which interviewed survivors and witnesses.

Meanwhile, the report says that the cases it was able to document are only the tip of the iceberg.
