About 1,000 believed killed in Libya violence-UK

LONDON, (Reuters) – About 1,000 people are believed  to have been killed in clashes between supporters and opponents  of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, the British government said in  a human rights report published today.
In a quarterly update on human rights in Libya covering the  period since an uprising began against Gaddafi’s rule, Britain’s  Foreign Office said it was appalled by reports of serious human  rights violations during the conflict.
“Whilst there has been no official death toll, several  sources report that approximately 1,000 people have already been  killed and many more have been injured during the recent  violence,” it said.
