United Nations human rights investigators say they have turned up evidence of possible war crimes and crimes against humanity in Libya.

The first findings from outside experts commissioned by the Human Rights Council released Monday chronicle accounts of crimes like murder, torture, enslavement, extrajudicial killings and rape.
