UN wants killings in Haftar-controlled areas investigated

The United Nations has called on the authorities in Libya to investigate reports of extrajudicial killings in territory controlled until recently by the renegade Gen Khalifa Haftar.

The UN mission in Libya said it was very concerned by the discovery of at least eight mass graves, most of them in the city of Tarhouna.

The mission said last week it had received numerous reports of looting and the destruction of private and public property in the region, which in some cases appeared to be acts of retribution.
