A Libyan criminal court has sentenced 45 militiamen to death by firing squad for killing demonstrators in Tripoli in 2011.
They are accused of opening fire on dozens as rebel forces closed in on the capital during the uprising against former leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.
Aside from the 45 sentenced to death, 54 more were given five-year jail terms and another 22 were acquitted of charges relating to demonstrator deaths.
The death sentences announced on August 16 are the first known to be handed down by a Tripoli court since 2015
Earlier this year some rival factions agreed to hold parliamentary and presidential elections later this year.
But international observers, including human rights groups and politicians abroad, have cast doubt on whether the ballot should and will go ahead.
