Tripoli: A Libyan prosecutor says 40 suspects have appeared before a military tribunal in the country's first trial of Moammar Gaddafi loyalists since the dictator's overthrow.

The proceedings that opened Sunday in a Benghazi military base have been adjourned until Feb. 14.

Benghazi-based prosecutor Mohammed Mathi said Monday that this is the first trial of Gaddafi loyalists.

During Libya's uprising and eight-month civil war last year, Gaddafi's forces launched deadly attacks on cities, leaving thousands of people killed and injured.
