A shocking video that appears to show Libyan rebels torturing a group of sub-Saharan African detainees has appeared on YouTube.
The footage shows a dozen or so men – presumably captured mercenaries suspected of fighting for the toppled government of Muammur Gaddafi last year – held in what looks like a caged zoo enclosure.
They each have their hands tied behind their back and are sat on the cage’s dirty floor.
More objectionably, each has the old Libyan flag stuffed into his mouth.
