UN fact-finders chronicle war crimes,
crimes against humanity in Libya

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

A United Nations fact-finding team has gathered evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Libya, where militias, mercenaries and security forces have been fighting since former leader Moammar Gadhafi was ousted a decade ago.

In what amounts to an interim report to the UN Human Rights Council, the three-member team cites testimony and other evidence of extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances, torture, rape, and arbitrary arrest and detention throughout Libya—some committed by the former UN-sanctioned government based in Tripoli.

Pearson and the peacekeepers

Story by Sharon Adams

On Sept. 29, 1988, the United Nations Peacekeeping Force was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, an event that filled many Canadians with pride.
