ICC renews call for Libyan Major's arrest

Date: Sep 14, 2017

International Criminal Court Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, issued the call on Wednesday amid conflicting reports over whether Major Mahmoud al-Werfalli has been arrested. The court issued an arrest warrant for him in August.

Al-Werfalli is suspected of being behind the killings of 33 captives earlier this year in the city of Benghazi. Victims' bodies were found in garbage dumps with bound hands and gunshots to the head.

Bensouda says Al-Werfalli "stands accused of serious crimes. I therefore again call on Libya to take all possible steps to immediately arrest and surrender him to the ICC."
