[Embarrassing? I’ll say so! As I wrote yesterday, the ‘rebels’ have been carrying out the slaughter of Black Libyans, not ‘mercenaries’ in Tripoli as yesterday’s Independent felt free to describe them. No sign of this story on the BBC of course. WB]
The horrors began to emerge, despite careful media manipulation, right after Qaddafi’s compound of Bab al-Aziziya was stormed by rebel fighters. Aside from the expected looting and souvenir hauling by rebel fighters, dead bodies were seen strewn across the vast grassy expanses of the compound. At first, rebel fighters alleged they were killed by government loyalists, however, this statement was negated by a resident of the area. He was told to remain silent by one of the rebels.
