Trials related to the 2011 Yarmouk detention camp massacre will begin next month in Tripoli, Libya Herald reported on Thursday (December 27th).
Nine defendants are accused of torturing and executing more than 100 prisoners near the Yarmouk Military Base in Salahaddin, south of Tripoli. Officer Hamza Mabrouk Muftah El-Harizi will be tried separately by a military tribunal.
Human Rights Watch has investigated what it calls "the summary execution of detainees in the final days of the Kadhafi government's control of Tripoli".
The Tripoli prison was the home of the "Khamis Brigade". The youngest of Moamer Kadhafi's sons, 28-year-old Khamis was known by rebels as "The Butcher".
