The Head of Investigations Department at the Public Prosecutor's Office Al-Siddiq Al-Sour said Thursday they had issued a list of over 100 persons accused of being behind the mass graves in southern Tripoli and Tarhouna.

Al-Sour told reporters that the delegation of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is still in Libya and has seen the investigation results of the mass graves, and met with witnesses and families of the victims, adding that the ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has hailed the investigation work and speed of results.

An ICC team met this week with Al-Sour and discussed the mass graves' issue, which started in Tarhouna after Haftar's forces were defeated and chased out of the city. The team saw the evidence and asked for a list of accusations and suspects involved in this atrocious crime.

In June, Bensouda said ICC was investigating the mass graves unearthed in Tarhouna and would send a team to closely follow up on the issue.
