Mass grave found in Gaddafi hometown
Tripoli: A human rights groups says it has discovered 53 decomposing bodies, apparently of Muammar Gaddafi loyalists, some of whom may have been executed by revolutionary forces.
The New York-based Human Rights Watch said Monday that the discovery in Gaddafi`s hometown of Sirte "seems part of a trend of killings, looting and other abuses committed by anti-Gaddafi fighters who consider themselves above the law”.
The group urged Libyan authorities to rein in armed groups.
The latest discovery of the grave came to light as Libya`s new leaders declared the country liberated, following a brutal eight-month civil war. The declaration was overshadowed by continued questions about whether Gaddafi was executed after capture last week.
The US and Britain have called for an investigation.
