(JPost) — Evidence of execution-style murders in Libya as part of the growing turmoil in the North African country emerged in recent days based on videos uploaded on YouTube showing dead and bloody soldiers after they were executed for refusing to shoot demonstrators.
Other videos showed civilians preparing mass burials in Libya amid reports that as many as 2,000 people have been killed in the recent wave of unrest.
Meanwhile, former Libyan justice minister Mustafa Abdel Galil, who resigned from his post earlier this week, warned on Friday that Gaddafi may use biological and chemical weapons against civilians, according to an Al Jazeera report.
“We call on the international community and the UN to prevent Gaddafi from going on with his plans in Tripoli,” Galil told Al Jazeera.
“At the end when he’s really pressured, he can do anything. I think Gaddafi will burn everything left behind him.”
