The Libyan Crime Watch (LCW) has held the so-called 9th Brigade - well known as Kaniyat- the responsibility for the growing phenomenon of extrajudicial killings.

In its report released Saturday, the organization said it had documented since the beginning of November four cases of killings outside the law committed by the militia group which is fighting alongside Haftar’s armed groups, in addition to bodies for civilians found in Garrabuli town, east of Tripoli, calling on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to prosecute the perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Libya by virtue of its jurisdiction, according to the report.
