Good times in Libya these days. I guess things could have been worse. They could have been forced to wear panties on their heads.
A video that purportedly showing black Africans being forced to eat the former Libyan flag inside a cage by Libyan rebels has surfaced on the internet.
The video which was uploaded to the internet last week and has gained more prominence appearing on news websites shows around a dozen men are sat on the ground with their hands tied and small green flags in their mouths.
A voice can be heard shouting in Arabic, “eat your flag, you dog. Patience you dog, patience. God is great.” A number of people are shown standing outside the cage watching the torment unfold.
After Muammar Gaddafi was killed, hundreds of migrant workers from neighboring states were imprisoned by fighters allied to the new interim authorities.
They accuse the black Africans of having been mercenaries for the late ruler.
Thousands of sub-Saharan Africans have been rounded up since Gaddafi fell in August.
