New York, Mar 30 (Just Earth News/IBNS): The top United Nations official in Libya on Tuesday condemned recent reported executions and killings of civilians in the northern part of the country and called for the responsible to be held to account.

“I remind all parties to the conflict in Libya that torture, the execution of prisoners and direct or indiscriminate attacks against civilians are prohibited under international humanitarian and human rights Law,” said said Martin Kobler, who is the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).

In a statement issued by UNSMIL,  Kobler expresses sympathy and condolences to the families of the bereaved and to those injured.

According to reports, armed groups in Warshafana executed six men on 24 March, after abducting them from their homes. In addition, at least seven civilians, including three children, were killed during armed conflict in the area which includes al-Tewibya and al-Zawiya.

Warshafana has been the site of considerable fighting and destruction in recent years. It is located south of the capital, Tripoli.
