On October 24, 2011, Human Rights Watch (HRW) urged Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) to investigate the killings of 53 Muammar Gaddafi supporters. The bodies had been found in a hotel near Sirte and were alleged to have been part of the abuses committed by anti-Gaddafi fighters. The International Criminal Court (ICC) has jurisdiction over war crimes committed in Libya and can bring charges against those responsible for these crimes.
