A mass grave and secret prison used to abuse hostages captured by Islamic State has been unearthed in Lybia.
The discoveries were made during an ongoing battle between troops and ISIS militants in the city of Sirte as the fight for liberation continues.
Seven bodies were found buried in the grave that was discovered in a farm west of the city, while three prisoners – in dire condition after months of captivity – were saved when security forces came across a secret prison in another town after it was re-captured from the militants.
The prisoners had been in the secret prison for several months and were found in dire humanitarian conditions.
Having claimed Sirte as one of its strongholds last spring, the battle to cleanse the city of IS militants has continued to progress through government forces.
Last week, fighters allied to the Government of National Accord encircled IS in the Ouagadougou conference centre – a huge building the group has made as its headquarters.
