130 Libyan Soldiers Executed for Mutiny

Scores of Libyan soldiers have been executed for refusing to open fire on pro-democracy protesters, International Federation for Human Rights (IFHR) says.

An amateur video shows the bodies of some 130 slain soldiers with their hands tied behind their backs. The mutinous soldiers were shot dead in al-Baida near the eastern city of Benghazi.

This comes amid more reports of defiance among army ranks and soldiers who have refused to obey orders by embattled Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi to shoot peaceful protesters.'

  1. The dots to connect here are video.

    One dot:
    The massacred soldiers, and the "survivor" who explained it all - Muammar had us killed for refusing to shoot you guys.

    The other dot:
    The soldiers before their deaths, and their captors, as shown on ... Libyan state TV. Seems likely the rebels shot them all for refusing to mutiny. And the world blamed Gaddafi anyway.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
