Benghazi: 36 bodies, shot in the head and tortured, found tossed by the roadside
36 bodies of young men from Benghazi, who were lately abducted by the self-styled Libyan Army Forces led by Khalifa Haftar, were found in Abyar district – some kilometers away from downtown Benghazi – on Thursday evening.
The bodies were found with marks of torture and shots in their heads, which shows that they had been viciously and mercilessly murdered at the orders of the controlling militias naming themselves Libyan National Army in Benghazi, according to local media and social media as well as Libyan political and social activists.
The bodies were first reported by sources from the eastern branch of the Interior Ministry of the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Abyar district in eastern Benghazi.
The Interior Ministry bureau led by deputy interior minister Faraj Eqayem said it was investigating the heinous crime.
Outrageous comments and condemnations have come from all Libyans including the political and social activists, however; no official reaction from the Interim Government and the House of Representatives, to which, the forces of Haftar are related.
