Dozens of Libyan dissidents missing: Amnesty
London: Amnesty International says dozens
of people in Libya, including dissidents and opposition figures, have disappeared and are likely detained by forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi.
The London-based rights group lists more than 30 cases
in which individuals including political activists and those
suspected of supporting rebel fighters have disappeared since
The cases were based on testimonies from relatives and others related to those reported missing.
The group said yesterday that Gadhafi`s supporters appear to have a systematic policy to detain anyone suspected
of opposition to the dictator`s rule. It says some of the
dissidents are held incommunicado and transfered to Gadhafi`s
stronghold in western Libya.
