Libya conflict: United Nations accuses both sides of war crimes
United Nations investigators have accused Libyan government forces of war crimes and crimes against humanity; it also said there is evidence of opposition abuses as well. In a 90-page report, most critical of the Libyan government, it says the government committed murder, torture, forced disappearance and indiscriminate attacks on civilians. And the consistent pattern in which the acts were carried out suggests they were planned and ordered by Col. Gadhafi and members of his regime. But the report also raises concerns about Libya's opposition forces saying while acts of torture and cruel treatment were not as numerous as abuses carried out by government forces but they also constituted war crimes.
