UN expresses 'horror' at reported mass graves in Libya

The UN says it is horrified by the discovery of mass graves in the Libyan city of Tarhuna and other areas recently retaken from forces loyal to renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar.
Libya’s Government of National Accord says the graves contain the remains of government soldiers who had been taken prisoner.
Al Jazeera’s Mahmoud Abdelwahed reports from Tarhuna.

  • Esa Shaik says:

    Russia and America killing innocent people in the Middle East to achieve global dominance.Good thing Turkey is in Libya to spoil their plans.Reports Haftar even asked for Israel assistance to help him just shows how low he is willing to go for power.

    What a failed state Libya is, rich country rule by leaders with the sick mentality, this is the consequences they have been looking for, after they destroy their country.

  • Yarta Sanadka says:

    This is What UAE 🇦🇪 and Dictator Sisi want do and I’m sure Sisi does this in Egypt 🇪🇬 but nobody see it . Hafter and his Devils friends like Sisi and MBZ must face whatever did in Libya, Yemen 🇾🇪 and Egypt 🇪🇬

  • Steve Soltysiak says:

    The only “horror” from the UN is that’s it’s been reported. The blood of these Libyans is on Russia, UAE, Egypt, and France we know for certain. And we also seen the 14 brand new Russian SU-29’s Putin sent to Syria then had repainted and flown to Haftar’s part of Libya with the help of a Russian refueling air tanker

    • Ken Shabby says:

      Affluent successful nation destroyed by America.

    • eb Ka says:

      Stern Daler ah yeah? Who started war with Libya? France did , Sarkozy didn’t want to pay back the money he borrowed from Gaddafi, that’s why he started a war campaign. STOP SPREADING LIES. Turkey doesn’t even support that Haftar dude, USA, UAE Saudi Arabia, Israel EGYPT does!

    • Steve Soltysiak says:

      eb Ka ur the first ive heard of US involvement. Last I knew was 4 years ago when the Libyans burned down the US embassy and murdered the US ambassador and his workers

    • Stern Daler says:

      @eb Ka, Muammar Muhammad Abdassalam Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi was murdered by US paid Jihadi in 2011. And then the Jihadi took their arms to Syria where the US continued to use them. Now they return as mercenaries of the US, Turkey and the bani Thani. You are a Munāfiq troll paid by the US empire and the bani Thani. Go under Your bridge.

      p.s. France and Sarkozy did not have the resources to put the brother leader with his green book down. Sarkozy could not even pay the loan back. The brother leader was attacked because of an UNSC resolution created by the US. All the Arab Spring was created by the US billionaires, the Zionists and the CIA. Marshall Haftar and the national troops fight for the winners of the last election against the government that was to step down years ago. Haftar and al-Gaddafi fought against the forces of evil: the US Emperor Trump, Erdogan the Caliph of Ankara, the bani Thani and the Zionist bani Israel. All of them are only there to steel the oil and gas from the people of Libya, Egypt, Cyprus, Greece, Iraq, Palestine and Syria.

  • Men beyond borders says:

    What United Nations is doing in Libya, what role they are here to play by supporting GNA. United Nations never sent their Peacekeepers to protect Rohingya Minorities in Myanmar nor Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, Libya’s Muammer Gaddafi, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein regimes nor supported any parties in Yemen war. Why now???

      Oil, lots of glorious black oil

    • James Bowman says:

      Snak bars with nuts lol 😂

  • Jamie B says:

    All and any of these countries that the US has brought democracy to, have had war crimes and atrocities happen, by all sides. First, Libya went through the atrocities committed by the US terrorists, now there are atrocities being committed by both sides fighting for the power of the country. Don’t kid yourself, I would bet the recognized government, are committing their own atrocities. Cause there is no humanity when it comes to war, The goal is to win, to kill. All a result of the USA democracy hypocrisy!!!!

  • AnimalMother says:

    This seems false. No bodies, doesn’t look much like a mass grave site.. interviewing a rebel fighter?
    The mass media often refer to the rebel government as an “internationally recognised government” like they’re trying to emphasise that this is the legitimate government (good guy government) and commander Hafter is the aggressor that targets the innocent, like woman and children (bad guy). They constantly use the same “bad guy” vs “good guy” narrative like with Assad and the rebels/jihadis in the current war in Syria.

  • Ataşirke Tapma says:

    Organized crime with an international cover! Nobody mentions the mafia affiliate Wagner company who does the bidding of any third party willing to pay. The serious problem of black water and co will eventually get out of control, and whoever invoked the demon, will not be able to cast it out! Today, the world watches in silence as middle easteners are being slaughtered, but guess what: if you do nothing to stop the mascarade, it will certainly knock on your door!

  • Cagtay Tasdelen says:

    this war is not going to end soon. europe will interfere and support haftar and the egyptian side. they don’t want a government that is representing libyan people they rather want someone that saves european interests.

  • cool light says:

    Russia killed most Libians for Haftar as they did in Syria. Russia committed crimes against humanity and war crimes in both places.

    • cool light says:

      @Tanzim Hasan
      US is fighting against haftar. Haftar is Russian agent.

    • cool light says:

      @Stern Daler That’s what terrorist Haftar said as he and his masters Russia, Syria’s Asad slaughtered Libyans and justified it.
      All these war criminals must be brought to justice.

    • Tanzim Hasan says:

      @cool light Russian is fighting in Lybia for their interest and to spread Marxism! they are not better than the west in fact they are way a bigger propaganda than the west. btw french and italy helps haftar and Russia too ,but Haftar is playing both he gets close to the west and sometimes to Russia, but he is definitely a cia agent. he was in America in the state of the headquarter of cia!

      before going to the Libyan civil war.

      you need some geopolitics my friends and reading without being biased

    • cool light says:

      @Tanzim Hasan
      I know all that. And at the end the bottom line is forces on the ground that are waging war on Libyans and their democratically elected govt are Russian forces, Asad’s forces and haftar’s forces.
      These criminals are responsible for the carnage like non other.

    • Stern Daler says:
