Tripoli hospital receives 17 'executed' bodies

2011-08-25 12:43

Tripoli - A Tripoli hospital has received the bodies of 17 civilians believed to have been executed in recent days by government forces in Muammar Gaddafi's compound in the capital, a British medical worker said on Thursday.

"Yesterday a truck arrived at the hospital with 17 dead bodies," Kirsty Campbell of the International Medical Corps told Reuters.

"These guys were rounded up 10 days ago. They were found in Bab al-Aziziya when the guys [rebel fighters] went in. These guys were shot in an execution there," she said.

The wounds were not battlefield injuries, she said.

Rebel fighters overran the fortified Bab al-Aziziya complex, the centre of Gaddafi's power, on Tuesday.

She said there had been reports of more bodies, but added: "I myself counted 17 last night."

Campbell said family members had identified the victims.

    Disgusting and horrifying

      Illuminated - 2011-08-25 16:09

      allan you idiot, im white and hate the ANC, but im not stupid to the tactics of the west.. none of these people here really know how politics and governments work.. you just give your armchair comments that you hear on western owned media.. anyone who is a threat to the empire is eliminated.. i can give you countless examples of how america has raped, pillaged and plundered the 3rd world for decades but you wouldnt bother to follow it up.. fortunately our government is spineless and poses zero threat to the west so they leave us alone... its a losing battle with people like you because you take the crap you are brainwashed with as gospel and fail to see that everything reported has an agenda, either as misinformation or propaganda... how many times have they reported that they captured gadaffis sons and that lybia will be theirs in hours and yet none of that is true.. no point in arguing with you. the AU is a joke YES, ANC is joke YES, Gadaffi was in charge for 40 years YES, but none of that gives the West the right dominate everyone...

      slg, now i know your name is allan and illuminated knows you well. Please, listen to him, he is a wise guy.

  • Illuminated - 2011-08-25 13:05

    oh the rebels say it was gadaffi's men, no other proof needed... we'll just take their word for it...

      OzzyInSA - 2011-08-25 13:27

      You need to learn how to read and comprehend.

      Wes - 2011-08-25 13:34

      That will never happen Ozzy. Illuminated is very dim.

      DeonL - 2011-08-25 13:47

      Mohammed, the Gov. backed the wrong horse and the Rebels (New Libya)won't do business with us and other countries that was against them.

      allan.clean - 2011-08-25 14:59

      @ Illuminated you sure are a ANC Agent. Deny deny deny. Zimbabwe is calling you. I hope you voted ZNPF/ANC

  • John Burnstein - 2011-08-25 13:06

    Yeah whatever. These are all lies!! They where exectuted by the rebel thugs!!!

      Andy - 2011-08-25 13:14

      Thats great, can you pass your evidence to all the news agencies around the world asap?? don't want them to continue reporting lies if you have proper evidence...

      Sven - 2011-08-25 13:19

      @John, seeing that the Rebels are made up of local citizens, why would they commit such an atrocity to their own people? If you have proof, why not take it to the Hague?

      IC1 - 2011-08-25 13:24

      @John, you and poliodonkey are equally stupid

      OzzyInSA - 2011-08-25 13:28

      @John, I guess you know this because you are there and have seen for yourself?

      DeonL - 2011-08-25 13:51

      Gaddafi previously admitted that they blowed up the Lockerbee plane in 1988. He even paid compensation of $10m. My money is on him / his followers that killed these people.

  • daaivark - 2011-08-25 13:07

    And now the propaganda war will really heat up, as histories are written and rewritten over the next few weeks. From here on even less is to be believed of what any of the involved parties have to say.

  • IC1 - 2011-08-25 13:23

    Hey Gwede, why dont you get the ICC to investigate your buddy about this, oh no, I guess that this is acceptable

  • Len - 2011-08-25 13:23

    Yep Zuma's buddy or the other lot who knows.I wonder how much diamonds and other valuables the two South Africn planes picked up in Tripoli?

    What would drive a man who gave and dedicated his life to the emancipation of his people do this? We have been here before as Africa and we are not moved at all by this propaganda that is being spread by the west! Whether they like it or not the Africans will always view the Colonel's government as a legit one and not this puppet regime of NTG!

      IC1 - 2011-08-25 13:33


      Liberated - 2011-08-25 13:37

      shut up, is News24 from the West? Having lived in Libya for 11 years I can confidently tell you that these okes were executed by Ghadaffi, he personally fired the shots.

      Carmaine Harrison - 2011-08-25 13:37

      GREED!!!!! For money and power. That and women is what makes any good guy fall.

      tut - 2011-08-25 13:41

      How about his emancipation of innocent passengers lives over Lockerbee? Maybe Africa should stop supporting terrorist regimes like Qadaffi's/ others. Ironically always the west to assist and hand out free bags of maize when your African brothers have f@cked their countries up in a legit manner! Embicile.

      Indomitable Momo - 2011-08-25 13:48

      100% correct. @tut - what about USA's bombing in the 80's of Libya that killed Brother Leaders 2yr old daughter? What did she do? West only assists to steal the wealth of African states - fact. And, news24 is part of the propaganda, make no mistake about it. DO not believe everything u read.

      tut - 2011-08-25 14:11

      @Indomatable Homo...."Brother" leader what are you all so incestuous about?? Sad about his daughter agree she was innocent but at least didnt grow up to see what a murderer her father was! Doesn't change the fact that he murdered 100+ hey! Take off your UN printed hessian blind fold fool!

  • Len - 2011-08-25 13:30

    With the ANC in power one can only expect worse things to happen as have been shown in the past years that this corrupt band of idiots came into power through the supreme idiot de Klerk who thought that his forefathers were wrong in sidelining the savage black.Now he has 1000's of farmers murdered babies boiled and goodness knows what else. As far as stock theft is concerned around 100 000 sheep were stolen by our brothers this year alone. Murder and rape abounds.Viva African National Crime Viva corrupt brothers and liars viva Ghadaffi!!

  • ihatum - 2011-08-25 13:47

    Who's going to believe any news coming from Libya?, Seems like it's all propaganda.

  • ihatum - 2011-08-25 13:53

    Only a fool will believe all this propaganda. This not being investigative journalism is just words from one person's mouth with no verification whatsoever. It's disgusting, makes me lose respect for the journalists. The same way they were used in Iraq a couple of years ago, they are still being used today in Libya to spread propaganda.

      chirimuhomwe - 2011-08-25 14:05

      are you saying gadaffi and his forces have not committed crimes against humanity before ? how is this far from their behavior - they have set precedent in this and the rebels haven't. i choose to believe that gadaffi did it as he has done this work before

      @chirimuhomwe: there are photographs all over the net of civilians that were slaughtered by the so-called "rebels", but I suppose that's still not good enough for you.

  • daaivark - 2011-08-25 14:20

    There are no good guys in military conflicts. Simply different agendas.

  • moderfontein - 2011-08-25 15:13

    It does not take much brain power to work out who "excuted" the 17 people alleged to have been found by Zionist American and NATO backed tratiors and gangsters. One forign website has quoted a young Libyan who said that the bodies were actually murdered after being tortured by the ZIONIST/NATO backed gangsters as they were suspected of being Loyal Libyans . The Zionist controlled western media of CNN, BBC, Fox News etc will report such killings and torture carried out by the NATO backed thugs and gangsters as being done by Loyal Libyans who have dared try and defend their country agnist Zionist American Impearlist and NATO agression.

      frankm - 2011-08-25 19:07

      @moderfontein, you are an absolute bloody idiot and a racist to boot
