Gaddafi Forces killed 10,000 Muslims in Libya
Libya’s National Transition Council said on Tuesday that another 30,000 were wounded and 20,000 more are still missing, AFP reported.
The revolutionary council, headed by Libya’s former Justice Minister Mustafa Abdel Jalil, plans to lead the country to an election.
Jalil was among the first high-profile Libyan figures to join protesters following Gaddafi regime’s brutal crackdown on the opposition.
The developments come as there are grave concerns regarding the humanitarian situation and the safety of civilians in the city of Misrata which is under siege by Gaddafi’s forces.
Misratah has been the scene of heavy bombardments for more than a month now, with fighting reaching its central parts.
Libya’s state-run television says a NATO airstrike on the town of Kikla has killed a number of civilians and police members.
Dozens of civilians have been killed in Libya since the Western military alliance launched aerial and sea attacks on the North African country.
Human rights groups say Gaddafi troops have also killed thousands of civilians since a revolution started against Colonel Gaddafi in mid-February.
