Gaddafi forces execute patients

2011-02-24 22:45

Rome - Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi stormed hospitals in Tripoli and summarily executed injured anti-regime protesters who were being treated, a report said on Thursday.

Members of the Libyan Revolutionary Committee, the backbone of Gaddafi's regime, "burst in hospitals and killed wounded people who had protested against the regime," said Slimane Bouchuiguir, who leads the Libyan branch of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), cited by Italian news agency MISNA.

"They transported the corpses to make them disappear, perhaps to burn them, because they know that foreign journalists are moving closer," he said of the incidents that took place Tuesday and Wednesday.

"Doctors who objected were threatened," he added.

The account reached Bouchuiguir in Switzerland, where the rights group is based, because independent organisations are banned in Libya under Gaddafi's 41-year rule.

Into the tenth day of revolts that rights groups claim to have killed at least 600 people, Gaddafi appeared to be losing his grip on Thursday in front of an emboldened opposition and as Western nations mulled sanctions.

    Animals behave better. These people do not deserve to be called animals. Disgusting and it shows how Ghadaffi and his cronies think about the worth of human life. Makes one think how our government can remain quiet on this issue. Perhaps they hold life just as cheap as these 'friends' of theirs?

      Alibaba - 2011-02-25 00:05

      Our esteemed government (and our esteemed learned Prez in particular) probably did the same things to dissidents in their camps in North Africa during their exile, so in principle they have no problems with this course of action.

      Tc - 2011-02-25 07:04

      The ANC will never pick sides against Gadaffi. Remember the rumour which was never denied, that Gadaffii financed ANC election campaigns.

      gargmelsmurfeater - 2011-02-25 07:08

      Our Government is taking notes. They say they will be in control till the second coming, and this is probably how. With all the service delivery protests we are already having, combined with the lavish spending of the ANC, the poor are not far away from an uprising.

      tony_w - 2011-02-25 08:48

      Alibaba, only in their camps in North Africa? Won't be surprised if the ANC secretly send Gadaffi a truckload of some used tyres and matches.

      Why do u think the ANC should say something....why not the DA....amazing how u all kept mum when Bush was destroying Afghanistan....u a so short sighted believeing that everything that is bad should be pointed to the ANC....maybe u need to start praying for ur self

      Mafaka - 2011-02-25 11:42

      @ mkanyie: "why not the DA"?"... last time I checked the ANC was the current ruling party of this country. Do you really think Gaddafi will give a sh*t what a non ruling party thinks of him??? Only the ANC can implement sanctions. Talk about short sighted...

    Jesus! What is it going to take for someone to step in? Is the UN having another debate on the definition of the word "genocide"? Somebody, anybody get in there and put an end to this madness!

      burtfred - 2011-02-25 07:14

      Alfred, your use of the Lords name is unacceptable and offensive to many. Please don't do that.

      Calvyn - 2011-02-25 07:26

      Burtfred, funny you should bring that up - where is the Lord in all of this?

      Matthew Buser - 2011-02-25 07:31

      @burtfred, this isnt a religious forum, go push the bible somewhere else!

      phillip.havenga - 2011-02-25 07:47

      These are the action of evil disgusting men. The Lord has given us the ability to tell right from wrong it's about time people in authority stood up and did something. There is no greater evil than when a good man stands by and does nothing when evil deeds are being committed.

      Ozymandios - 2011-02-25 08:00

      @Calvyn the Lord walked away from us lot, a long time ago. We voted in these type of people so why should He be bothered now. The world wants useless organisations like the UN and the US Government and politicians to lead us, so then we must bare the consequences of those decisions. The rain falls on the good and the evil. I think He is pretty 'gatvol' of human nature right now and has decided to let us live our lives the way we choose. Maybe when we are all on this planet, butchering ourselves to oblivion He'll return and then He'll donder us all up pretty good and start again with a few decent folk that will be left.Not sure Zuma and Ghadaffi will be amongst that lot. Its no good asking where God is. He's there all right but we've chosen a different path to Him so take it on the chin and make a choice where you want to stand.

      Want to know why no-one will step up? Because war never changes. If this is truly a case of Libyans taking control of their own destiny, (official) international intervention will only muddy the waters.

      maybe this is proof that Jesus does not exist

      daboss247365 - 2011-02-25 13:32

      The UN is a toothless dog! It is the most unfair, autocratic system ever implemented, & the sooner it is destroyed, laughed off & desrespected the better. Filled with spineless, liberal & self concentrated weasles, the UN has never ever, in it's history, done anything worth commendation. Their peacekeeping efforts are a bottomless hopeless money pit, their humanitarian efforts are pathetic & their mandates make them utterly laughable. We need a proper body, not this dog's afterbirth, if there is to be any decision making power in this world.

      BigWig - 2011-02-25 15:25

      Why don't you put an end to this madness if you feel that strong about .Why ask or wait for some else to do . ....Excuse me. I did not hear. What you mind repeating it. I thoughts so. The same answer that 6 999 999 000 of the world's population would give , give or take 100

      Breathe - 2011-02-25 15:28

      It's sad, isn't it? But genocide never appears to receive any assistance. Take a look at Ruwanda. The UN will pretend this isn't happening and will arrive after all the drama is over, the stench of death in the air, and apologize for never having realized.

      iambradlee - 2011-02-25 15:55

      @burtfred....YEAH Calvyn....NO NEWS FROM GOD AS USUAL....If there is a supreme being as you christians maintain....he can get stuffed for the way he/she allows evil to prosper...If there is a god, they are by default responsible for these atrocities for doing nothing, and I want no part of that kind of God.

      labrat - 2011-02-25 17:46

      Technically it is not genocide but simple mass murder.

      DW - 2011-02-25 19:52

      Whilst Alfred's comments were correct, his use of the Lords name is offensive to many as burtfred says. It is not a matter of bringing religion into it. Why doesnt he say Mohammed or Budda's name instead. It is not appreciated and that is the end of it.

  • ismail - 2011-02-25 05:10

      alfred - 2011-02-25 07:49

      Yes, it is an embarassment indeed. Whyn would someone rule for more than two terms of office ? Why one man ruling for 41 years ? This is mockery of democracy . The same with some African leaders that are ruling for 30 years , and for what reasons ? And no African leaders says anything about it. It is always better to step down with good name and respect then to be removed by people. Polical party is not a family entity.

  • Casper - 2011-02-25 05:17

    4500 of the 30000 Chinese workers in Libya have been evacuated since the unrest started. 30000 foreign workers in a country where the unemployment rate is 30%. Did Ghadaffi really think that this would not add fuel to the fire.

So don't blame S.A gov for keeping quiet about this.

  • Sparxi - 2011-02-25 07:22

    If true (and IF is the operative word), it would have been a sick and depraved thing to do. And everybody seems to have automatically assumed that the story is true, because it's "Gaddafi/Khadafi/Ghadaffi" (however you want to spell it). Where are the WMDs in Iraq?

      willa.duplessis - 2011-02-25 08:40

      No Sparxi...the reports from those fleeing and that have made it out as well as the video footage leaking out is all a figment of everyone's imagination. We just don't have anything better to do with our time so we conjure up "stories" like this to piss people like you off. You really are not very bright are you? This is NOTHING like Iraq.

      gargmelsmurfeater - 2011-02-25 08:55

      Have you not seen the photos, or the videos, or the many eye witness reports from people from all over the world? You sir are deaf, dumb and blind it seems...

      Bryan - 2011-02-25 12:42

      Sparxi : This has sweet f/a do with Iraq, and FYI the WMD's were shipped out of Iraq into neighbouring countries like Iran prior to US occupation. Special Forces did locate some as well, but the media didn't want to report the finding because it didn't fit in with their anti-war stance. Now you know.

      Sparxi - 2011-03-03 17:51

      Goodness gracious! So you've seen the video footage of the patients in hospital being executed have you, as claimed in the story above? Please do share! I am not disputing any of the other eye witness accounts, images and footage coming out of Libya, but this specific story remains an unsubtantiated claim, which everyone has simply chosen to believe because a) it's Ghadaffi, b)it's Ghadaffi, c) it's Ghadaffi and d) we have photos and the like of other people being shot in completely different circumstances and places so this must also be true... That's the point, gargmelsmurfeater. Sometimes people say unsubstantiated things in order to swing support in a particular direction. That's the link to Iraq and WMD, Willa & Bryan. Oh, and Bryan, please do share the footage of those WMDs that ended up in neighbouring countries, will you?. Surpised that hasn't ended up on Wikkileaks... I am neither deaf, dumb, blind or stupid, I just prefer statements to come with some proof, related to those statements.

      Probably will never happen. Last I checked, the main members of the Security Council have to vote unanimously for armed intervention, and since Europe currently buys most of Libya's oil, they'll have to weigh up their options first.

    What is upsetting is how the so called Western "Democracies" can select a Country like Iraq, who, what a surprise, did not have weapons of mass destruction and are now forever in the debt of America and UK (pse pay by sending barrels of oil) for their "Freedom" but countries like Libya, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Somalia, and other countries run by despots are not touched as they do not have anything to offer the globalised world. These despots can kill, maim, plunder and steal from their own people and the likes of these countries are being traded with as they are emerging business to the 5 UN countries that hold casting votes. The world dynamics needs to change!!!

      pointblankza - 2011-02-25 13:32

      Actually the US has intervened and still does in countries like Rawanda and Somalia... sadly, without much effect. THe brutality, savagery and sheer unhuman acts taking part in African countries are even beyond what the US can offer in terms of help..

      eno2 - 2011-02-25 14:36

      Also, Libya produces about 2% of the world's oil so they do have something to offer...

      Bryan - 2011-02-25 15:28

      Uhhhh, Iraq had no WMD's (?), hmmmm... I wonder what the chemical munitions Hussein used to kill over +300,000-people were? I wonder why WMD's were transported into Iran and neighbouring countries prior to US occupation where the US was not at liberty to go... Edgumicate yourself bro, and Somalia will soon enough see its day.

      Breathe - 2011-02-25 15:47

      On no the US did not intervene in Ruwanda. Get the facts straight. They removed their embassy people and their peacekeeping forces and allowed the genocide to continue. After the proverbial hit the fan they apologized.

    I wonder when this friend of the ANC will pitch tent in SA to live at the taxpayers expense. Much like that asshole from Haiti who has lived here for free for many years. The ANC always looks after their friends no matter how dispicable. Probably find mad Bob also living here soon and that dimwitted midget from North Korea.

      eno2 - 2011-02-25 14:37

      Let them all go live on one of the farms, they will be killed very soon.

  • JohannV - 2011-02-25 12:57

    In any country, under any circumstances, under any oppression - FIGHTING for PEACE is like fu@king for virginity. The ends do NOT justify the means. We are not to judge, but any leader of a so-called "revolution" or "struggle movement" must know that his or her people are setting landmines, ambushing tourist or school buses, attacking railway lines, farms, churches or any soft target - therefor such a person is a terrorist and should be seen as such. How do these people get Nobel Prizes? Guilt by association, no?

  • besh - 2011-02-25 13:05

    What a propaganda - His oil,beig straight to the point,denial of the bombings,choosing to eat his own food and choosing his tent as opposed to sleeping in floor 102.There is proper approach to this not a coup'.Osama is also in this ..are you .As an Arab I listen to the Arabic News and Gaddafi is gaining momentum for your info.

  • Sean - 2011-02-25 13:16

    The ANC has been funded by Ghadaffi and no doubt much under handed business dealings have taken place between them. They dare not speak against him. Same with Mugabe. They have so much collective dirty laundry that they dare not criticise these thugs.

  • Errol Xolo - 2011-02-25 13:24

    How many of us have really witnessed poeple being murdered in Hospitals in Libya? The ANC doen't have to comment, neither does the DA or any other party for that matter. The SA government has to get SA people out of there SAFE and let the UN and people of LIBYA sort their issues out! Bush di not find a drop of the weapons of mass distruction he went to IRAQ for, nothing's gone better in AFGHANISTAN and now what? You want the SA government to intervene, ppl please!

  • seepike - 2011-02-25 13:46

    People of the world - whatever your race, religion, sexual orientation - surely we can agree that when people stand up to their leaders en masse, they are enacting the most important bastion of democracy - that the people must be satisfied with their country's leadership. Any leader who has remained in absolute power after an extended period of over a decade (over 2 terms in office) becomes a natural target of his / her own people. Liberators become tyrants, rebels become the scum they fought against in the first place. All of this, once their lack of freedom has been replaced by lack of opposition. Political monopolies are the first step in any new cycle of tyranny. Gaddafi is just another parasite, sucking the life out of his country and enriching his friends and family while his people suffer. It's an old formula that usually ends the same way - in revolution and bloodshed. Gaddafi will not escape the same fate that befell so many oppressors before him.

    Lol.. 'Libyan Revolutionary Committee' and our own famous 'Revolutionary Movement', ANC.. Wake up! You are the focus of the revolution now..

    Will somebody please drop some laser-guided death into that madman's tent? Seriously. I've never been for wars and violence but this must end right now.

  • peter - 2011-02-25 17:24

    I am sure that the ANC will condem Ghadaffi soon! Odd how a Feedom Charter based political party has such little regard for the civil liberties of those in countries like Libia and Zimbabwe. Ethics seems to run very shallow in the ANC. Self enrichment runs deep!

  • ian - 2011-02-25 18:12

    the man should have been thrown out years ago, why now is the shouting so loud OIL OIL OIL oops sorry i meant MURDER MURDER MURDER seems to me that when the two are found together the world turns a blind eye. The big oil companies have been paying the piper and Garafi plays the tune the saying chickend and roost come to mind I HOPE ALL THE OIL COMPANIES LOSE THEIR SO CALLED RIGHTS
