Killing

The bodies of around 53 people have been found in a warehouse in the Libyan capital Tripoli after apparently being executed earlier this week, Britain's Sky News reported on Saturday.

Sky News' correspondent, Stuart Ramsay, said he had counted the bodies in a burned-out warehouse in southern Tripoli, and estimated there were 53.
   
"It is a scene of mass murder," he said, reporting from the scene.

Ramsay quoted witnesses as saying that 150 people were murdered at the site on August 23 and 24 as rebel forces fought to take control of Tripoli from troops loyal to leader Muammar Gaddafi.

A local resident told Sky that the victims were mostly civilians and said they had been killed by Gaddafi's forces. - Reuters

Loot

Al Jazeera's Evan Hill sent us a picture of children in the Salaheddin neighbourhood on the southern outskirts of Tripoli look through a box looted from a nearby criminal investigations office. Rebels overran the district on Friday en route to a battle at the Khamis Brigade barracks. The box contained telephones. The children also looted sneakers.

Jacky Rowland reporting 13 km from Ras Lanuf in the oil terminal of al-Sidra said:


We are now very close to the frontline and the military checkpoint behind me is pretty much the last checkpoint before the frontline.


The rebel fighters have been able to push beyond Ras Lanuf right now, but in my experience they have never been able to push any further here.  I was pretty close to this very same spot about five months ago.


The rebels are testing how far they can get. But the Gaddafi forces at the moment seem to have drawn a red line here just to the west of Ras Lanuf it seems like they really don't want the rebels to advance any further."

Tito ............

Is a name that comes to mind  ...........

Yugoslavia was held together by an 'Iron Rule' and people learned to live with it ........

Then the Balkans fractured and will remain so ........

It depends on your point of view whether that was good or bad  .........


With Libya you have numerous tribes, and 'oodles' of separate oil areas  .........

Read 'money' for that and then add the human factor .......

Oh dear .........

Gadafi is an African despot of the mold of  Idi Amin

you must be really brain dead to still praise Gadafi even today.

a good leader would commit suicide after he lost.

a Gadafi will want to  destroy Libya when he goes down.

Now the rebel are fighting against gaddafi forces.

It will turn to inner battle within the rebels.

The civil war in tripoly has started and how many thousand been killed no one doesnt know.

Do you think according to Arab tribal trends the killed one heir will take a revenge in a certain time.

The power games will start soon.
