Arrests over Gaddafi-era diplomat's murder

Investigation launched after rights group accuses revolutionary forces of torturing Omar Brebesh to death.



    Eight suspects have been detained in Libya in connection with the killing of a diplomat who served under Muammar Gaddafi, the late Libyan ruler.

    Human Rights Watch, the UK-based rights monitor, says Omar Brebesh was tortured to death by the revolutionary groups that overthrew Gaddafi last year.
