Evidence of Libya torture emerges

As the opposition roots through prisons, fresh evidence emerges of the government's use of torture.

    As opposition groups in Libya take over areas outside of the capital, state prisons and military buildings are being searched.

    In Benghazi, the opposition says they have unearthed equipment used by the government to torture dissidents, while more and more allegations of cruelty towards political prisoners are emerging.
