Amnesty International Says “Out of Control” Libyan Militias Are Commiting Widespread Abuses Against Suspected Al-Gaddafi Loyalists, Including Torture and Killings | Amnesty International USA

In January and early February, Amnesty International representatives visited 11 detention facilities in central and western Libya used by various militias. At 10 of the facilities,  detainees said they had been tortured or ill-treated  and showed Amnesty International researchers injuries resulting from recent abuse. Several detainees said they had confessed to rape, killings and other crimes they had not committed just to end the torture.At least 12 detainees held by militias have died after being tortured since September.  Their bodies were covered in bruises, wounds and cuts and some had had nails pulled off.  Individuals held in and around Tripoli, Gharyan, Misratah, Sirte and Zawiya told Amnesty International they had been suspended in contorted positions; beaten for hours with whips, cables, plastic hoses, metal chains and bars, and wooden sticks and given electric shocks with live wires and taser-like electro-shock weapons.
