Ethnic Cleansing in Libya

Right Wing Nut House focuses attention on the dark side of the revolt against Muammar Gaddafi (who is still in hiding):

This is a below the radar story that is getting some traction in the western press, but not much here in the US. Black sub-Saharan migrant workers - as well as black Libyans who make up about a quarter of the population - are suffering what has the makings of a real tragedy as rebel soldiers (and anyone with a gun) is terrorizing just about anyone with a black face.

There have been massive roundups of black males in Tripoli and they are being held in primitive, unsanitary conditions. There are reports that some of the prisoners have been brutalized while others have been shot dead....

EDITORIAL NOTE: This is the expected backlash against the fact that many of the mercenaries who defended the Gaddafi regime and killed innocent civilians were blacks from countries such as Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Niger, and Mali.

UPDATE: Rick Moran of Front Page Magazine provides more details in "Internment and Terror for Black Libyans."
