Militias from the Libyan city of Misrata are “terrorising” displaced residents of the town of Tawargha over their alleged loyalty to Muammar Gaddafi, says a rights group.

The entire town, once home to 30,000 people, has been abandoned, said US-based Human Rights Watch (HRW). [2]

Parts have been ransacked and burnt and residents told not to return, it said.

The ruling NTC said it has ordered its forces not to loot and that an inquiry would be held in case of wrongdoing.

“We are in complete harmony. If there has been anything outside the law, there will be an investigation,” said Deputy Defence Minister Fawzi Abu Katif.
