Armed groups execute and torture civilians in Libya in almost complete impunity seven years after the revolution that toppled Moammar Gadhafi, the U.N. human rights office said Wednesday.Libya is split between rival governments in the east and west while ports and beaches are largely in the hands of armed groups who smuggle mainly African migrants onto boats heading for Italy and Europe.Werfalli, who is attached to Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army, has been indicted by the International Criminal Court for allegedly overseeing the summary execution of several dozen prisoners.Separately, Human Rights Watch said Libya should resist rushing into elections this year because the country is too violent and authorities cannot guarantee freedom of assembly or free speech, which are essential for a vote.
