“Torture and death in detention have become widespread problems in postwar Libya, international humanitarian groups said Thursday, a troubling indication that some Qaddafi-era abuses continue under the fractured rule of the country’s interim government and regionally organized militias.

Amnesty International said in a statement that “several” people had been tortured to death in detention “by officially recognized military and security entities,” as well as by “a multitude of armed militias.””
