The International Criminal Court in The Hague has issued a second arrest warrant for a senior commander of an armed group in Libya.

Mahmoud al-Werfalli is accused of war crimes for allegedly executing dozens of prisoners.

Mr Werfalli commands a unit in the self-styled Libyan National Army, which is the dominant force in eastern Libya.

It does not accept the internationally-recognised government in Tripoli.

This latest arrest warrant comes after a video surfaced on social media in January, which appears to show him shooting 10 people in front of a mosque in the city of Benghazi.

The ICC’s first arrest warrant for Mahmoud Al-Werfalli was issued last August for the alleged murders of 33 people in seven different incidents between June 2016 and July 2017.
