Libya finds new mass grave in Tarhuna

10:44 23 October 2021 Author :  

A new mass grave was found in Libya’s southwestern city of Tarhuna that was recently liberated from warlord Khalifa Haftar’s militia, the government said Friday. 

The General Authority for Research and Identification of Missing Persons said the grave was discovered in an agricultural project area.

Haftar’s forces and affiliated militias committed war crimes and acts of genocide from April 2019 to June 2020, according to official sources.

Libya has been torn by civil war since the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

On Feb. 5, Libya's rival political groups agreed during UN-mediated talks to form an interim unity government to lead the country to elections in December in which Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh was designated to form a new government./aa
