TRIPOLI: Human Rights Watch on Wednesday condemned a series of summary executions of dozens of people in areas of eastern Libya under the control of controversial strongman Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

 The New York-based watchdog called on Haftar’s Libyan National Army to make good on a promise to investigate the latest killings and to hand over a suspect wanted by the International Criminal Court in connection with previous executions. Police discovered the bodies of 36 men, all of them executed, near Al-Abyar, 50 kilometres (30 miles) east of Libya’s second city Benghazi, on October 26.
