ICRC: 13 mass graves found in Libya
Cairo/Beirut - At least 13 mass graves have been found in Libya over the past three weeks, the International Committee of the Red Cross said on Thursday.
The Geneva-based Red Cross said its staff "assisted in the recovery of 125 bodies found at 12 different sites in and around Tripoli".
ICRC spokesperson Steven Anderson said "more mass graves are being found every week".
On Wednesday Human Rights Watch said 34 bodies were exhumed from a mass grave in western Libya.
The organisation accused forces loyal to fugitive leader Muammar Gaddafi, of committing crimes against humanity when they were ruling the area before it came under the control of the rebels in August.
