Kids mimicking ICC-wanted Libyan killer Mahmoud Al-Werfalli in Benghazi [Screen-grab from footage]

A shocking video was posted online and went viral over the last two days in Libya showing a group of kids re-acting a scene from the crime of Mahmoud Al-Werfalli, Libyan east-based fighters, in which he killed 10 prisoners using his machine gun.
 
The footage shows six boys dropped to their knees and putting their hands behind their backs in an attempt to funnily imitate the scene of Al-Werfalli, then appears a seventh boy totting what appears to be a fake rifle “toy” and impersonating Al-Werfalli to shoot dead the kids.
 
Mahmoud Al-Werfalli is a leader in Saiqa Forces of Khalifa Haftar’s self-proclaimed army in eastern Libya. He is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, UN and the UN Security Council all demanded Libyan authorities to hand over Al-Werfalli to receive his punishment.
 
According to observers, the sight of kids re-acting crimes they see in their city or on the TV for people living around them is a real proof of how devastated the situation has become in those areas of conflicts, where kids are left with nothing to do except act-killing.
