Libyan Militia to Surrender Homosexual Captives

Twelve alleged homosexuals abducted last week from a private party in Tripoli's Ain Zara district will be handed over to the justice ministry; Libya Herald quoted a senior member of the Nawasi Brigade as saying on Tuesday (November 27th).

The so-called "Private Deterrent Force" posted images of the men on its Facebook page, saying the captives would be mutilated and executed.

The group is part of the Nawasi Brigade, a large militia under the authority of the interior ministry.
