The United Nations, UN says it was alarmed by reports of “brutal and outrageous summary executions” in the eastern city of Benghazi, after pictures emerged appearing to show nine people being shot dead at the site of a twin car bombing.

The UN Support Mission in Libya, UNSMIL, suggested in a tweet that the gunman was Mahmoud al-Werfalli, a Special Forces commander wanted by the International Criminal Court, ICC for allegedly carrying out a number of similar killings.

The UN demanded for the handing over of Mahmoud al-Werfalli immediately to the ICC as it documented at least five similar cases, in 2017 alone, carried out or ordered by him.

The photos, which were posted on social media and in local media, appear to show executions in front of Benghazi’s Bayaat al-Radwan mosque, where a twin car bombing on Tuesday left at least 35 people dead.
