Rebels in Libya, liberated with “non-war” help from the Administration of Barack Obama last year, are seen allegedly torturing a group of black Africans in a video discovered online.
The video portrays the detainment and torture of a group of black Africans at the hands of Libyan rebels. The victims are allegedly held in a zoo cage with their hands bound as their tormentors shout at them.
“Eat the flag, you dog. Patience you dog, patience. God is great,” screams a voice off-camera in the video according to RT.
According to the Daily Mail, the men in the cage are presumably captured mercenaries suspected of fighting for the toppled government of Moammar Gadhafi last year. While the news source says it is impossible to verify whether the video is authentic, it emerged as the United Nations last week said that the Libyan revolutionary brigades still hold captive and may torture three-quarters of detainees from the country’s civil war.
According to RT, Before the Libyan uprising, the country hosted about 1 million black African workers, who were employed in domestic work, construction, trash collection and other low-wage jobs. Some human rights groups suspect Libyan rebels of ethnic cleansing of the black population of the country.
