More than 30 men believed to be fighters loyal to Muammar Gaddafi have been killed at an encampment in central Tripoli. At least two were bound with plastic handcuffs, indicating they had been executed.
A Reuters correspondent Thursday counted 30 bodies riddled with bullets in an area of Tripoli where there had been fighting between Gaddafi forces and rebels.
The encampment was strewn with green flags, photos of Gaddafi, and so on.
Some of the victims wore military uniforms. Some wore civilian clothes. Some were African men. Two of the bodies were charred beyond recognition.
The bodies were found at a traffic circle in an area of Tripoli that had been held by Gaddafi loyalists.
Elsewhere in Tripoli a British medical worker said a hospital had received the bodies of 17 civilians believed to have been executed. "Yesterday a truck arrived at the hospital with 17 dead bodies," Kirsty Campbell of the International Medical Corps told Reuters at Mitiga hospital. "These victims were rounded up 10 days ago. They were found in Bab al-Aziziya when the rebels went in. They were shot execution style.”
