The commander in Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan army Mahmoud Al-Werfalli conducted summary execution of 10 detainees in front of Bayat Al-Ridwan mosque in Benghazi, in the same spot the twin car bombings took place on Tuesday.

Mahmoud Al-Werfalli is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for summary executions and extrajudicial killings. He has been named for two arrest warrants by the ICC’s Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda.

On Tuesday, twin car bombings left 34 people killed and 87 injured as the explosions targeted the worshipers coming out of Bayat AL-Ridwan mosque, where the fugitive Al-Werfalli killed ten prisoners today.

According to sources from Benghazi, the commander of the self-styled army, Khalifa Haftar and his serial killer – Al-Werfalli – conducted the summary execution of the ten captives on Wednesday as a retaliatory act as they accused their opponents in the city of being behind the attacks of Tuesday, which have not been probed yet.

This new killing sees Al-Werfalli coming back to the scene again with a new inhumane crime as he has been accustomed to make the news in killing prisoners and captives as well as opponents of his commander; Haftar.
