Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) today released a report that combines medicine, forensic science, and eyewitness testimony to paint a stark picture of life and death in detention in Tripoli. The report, “32nd Brigade Massacre: Evidence of war crimes and the need to ensure justice and accountability in Libya,” provides a detailed and comprehensive forensic account of the 32nd Brigade massacre under Khamis Qaddafi on August 23, 2011 in Khalat Al Forjan, Tripoli.
Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) today renewed its calls for justice and accountability in Libya in the wake of questions surrounding the circumstances of Muammar Qaddafi’s death.
The Red Cross has reported that mass grave sites continue to be found across Libya. PHR has called for all exhumations to be ceased and the cites to be guarded until proper forensic procedures can take place.
The number of casualties in the struggle between Libyan revolutionaries and loyalists remains unclear, according to Physicians for Human Rights and other human rights groups.
PHR's Richard Sollom's Op-Ed in Global Post says all sides in Libya must be investigated and new rule of law established.
