The countries meeting in Paris in support of Libya's rebel interim government agreed to unblock $15bn in frozen Libyan funds immediately, the French president said.

"We are committed to returning to the Libyans the monies of yesterday for the building of tomorrow."

The leaders insisted on the need for Libyans themselves to lead the way forward and to avoid the lessons learned in Iraq, where the fall of Saddam Hussein was followed by years of sectarian violence.

Libya Rebel Leader Appeals Against Reprisals as Massacre Sites Found

Libya Rebel Leader Appeals Against Reprisals as Massacre Sites Found | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

A rebel leader is asking Libyans not to take revenge as worry mounts over massacre sites.

One week ago, the metal warehouse was a makeshift prison for enemies of Colonel Moammar Gadhafi now it is a death house containing about 50 scorched skeletons. Outside, another eight bodies lie on the grass, one with his hands tied behind his back.

This horror scene is in a compound, which was controlled until Tuesday by the Khamis brigade, an elite neighborhood controlled by Colonel Gadhafi’s son, Khamis. A survivor said that, as rebel forces approached, the Gadhafi soldiers shot their prisoners, and then tried to burn the bodies.

2 killed as thousands of Syrians protest; activists urge ‘determination’ despite stalemate

2 killed as thousands of Syrians protest; activists urge ‘determination’ despite stalemate | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

BEIRUT — Syrian security forces killed at least two people as tens of thousands of anti-government protesters flooded the streets on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, a time that many activists hoped would become a turning point in the uprising.

But more than five months into the revolt against President Bashar Assad, the conflict has descended into a bloody stalemate with both sides showing no sign of giving in. Activists chose “patience and determination” as the theme of Friday’s protests across the country of 22 million.

 

“We are here to tell the regime that nothing is finished, nothing will finish and we will not stay at home like you want us to,” a protester told The Associated Press by telephone from the central city of Homs, where he said thousands poured into the streets.
