The US embassy in Libya said on Twitter that Washington stands with the Libyan people and will continue to use the tools and authorities at its disposal, including in the Human Rights Council, to seek accountability for all human rights abusers.

The embassy added, commenting on the Fact-finding mission's report briefing at the UN Human Rights Council, that it shared the deep concerns expressed by the UN Fact-Finding Mission on Human Rights in Libya and renewed Washington's calls for the expedited removal of all foreign forces, including Russia's Wagner Group, which it described as "a transnational criminal organization found to have committed war crimes in Libya."

The Fact-finding mission's chairman Mohamed Auajjar said Monday in a press conference that there were reasons to believe that crimes against humanity had been committed against Libyan nationals and illegal immigrants across the country since 2016. 

He said armed groups like Khalifa Haftar's forces, Radaa (Deterrence) Apparatus for Fighting Terrorism and Organized Crime, and Stability Support Apparatus and its leaders were involved time and time again in several violations.
