Russia urges ICC to probe war crimes in Libya

Russia urges ICC to probe war crimes in Libya

Russia has urged the International Criminal Court to probe all war crimes in Libya.

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich has stressed that such a probe should focus, among others, on crimes committed following the military campaign in Libya in October last year.

The diplomat said that the UN Security Council adopted a resolution in February last year, whereby all crimes in Libya were to be investigated by the International Criminal Court.

But though more than two years have passed since the end of mass-scale combat action, those guilty of killing civilians and breaking international humanitarian law have never been called to account.
