Shocking: New Video Shows Public Execution In Football Stadium In Libya(Viewers Discretion Advised)

A shocking video showing an execution-style killing by an armed group at a football stadium in eastern Libya highlights the authorities’ failure to prevent parts of the country from descending into violence and lawlessness, Amnesty International said today. 

An amateur video published on social media sites, including YouTube shows the execution of an Egyptian man apparently organised by an armed group called the Shura Council of Islamic Youth in the eastern city of Derna.

The video shows the Egyptian victim, Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed, being brought blindfolded into the football ground in a pick-up truck. Masked men armed with rifles then force him to kneel on a stretcher. (See - note: viewers discretion advised).

A statement read out prior to the killing accuses him of stabbing to death a Libyan man, Khalid al-Dirsi. It is claimed that he admitted to murder and theft during interrogation by the Legitimate Committee for Dispute Resolution, a body apparently operating under the authority of the Shura Council of Islamic Youth. The statement says the Committee has ruled he is to be “executed” unless pardoned by the family of the victim. It appears from the video that the family refuses to grant a pardon. 

An unmasked man wearing plain clothes, believed to be the brother of Khalid al-Dirsi, is then given a handgun. He is seen shooting Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed from behind, possibly in the head or neck. Amnesty has also viewed photographs of the incident posted on social media that show a large crowd of people watching the killing from the stadium’s benches. Meanwhile, Amnesty has confirmed with sources in Derna that the killing did take place on 19 August on the outskirts of Derna.
