Libya: No place of safety: Civilians in Libya under attack
As anti-government protests developed into armed conflict between forces loyal to Colonel al-Gaddafi and opposition fighters from late February 2011, civilians living in some areas increasingly found that nowhere was safe. As this document illustrates, al- Gaddafi forces committed serious violations of international humanitarian law in their attempt to regain opposition-held territory. Relatives of those killed and survivors deserve a full remedy. The new leadership of Libya must ensure that these demands are realized, regardless of the outcome of the conflict.
