Two human rights activists aged 19 and 21 were beheaded in Derna, in eastern Libya, where jihadists have sworn allegiance to ISIS and imposed Sharia, or Islamic law, local media said Tuesday.
The two activists were reportedly supporters of renegade general Khalifa Gaftar who fights extremist groups alongside the army. The two victims are Mohammed Battu and Sirak Qath, who were abducted on November 6. Their bodies were found Tuesday by residents in Derna.
The city is controlled by the Islamic Youth Council, which has set up an Islamic tribunal and already carried out executions.
