Libya: UN finds new evidence of mass graves

UN investigators have found new evidence of mass graves believed to contain migrant bodies at a smuggling point in northwest Libya.

The organisation’s fact-finding mssion said the discovery – in the town of Tarhuna – provided further evidence that human rights violations in Libya are “widespread, systematic or both.”

The findings have been presented to the Human Rights Council.

Libya – a major hub for migrants trying to reach Europe – has been experiencing ongoing violence and instability since the toppling and killing of the country’s long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi more than a decade ago.
