VIDEO: Human Rights Watch Condemn Alleged Abuse Of Gaddafi's Son
Human Rights Watch says Libyan prison authorities should investigate the alleged abuse of a son of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi and other inmates in a Tripoli prison.
In a statement late on Monday, the US-based group said a video made available by news website Clearnews apparently showed guards beating Al-Saadi Gaddafi on the soles of his feet during an interrogation at al-Hadba prison. Other prisoners were seen in the background crying out in pain from being beaten as well.

Gaddafi’s son has been in pre-trial detention since authorities in Niger extradited him to Libya in 2014.
Libya is bitterly divided between rival governments in its east and west. Al-Hadba is under the control of forces allied with the Islamist-backed Tripoli government, which opposes the Tobruk-based internationally recognised government.
