GENEVA - UN human rights investigators said on Friday they would go to Libya this month to begin a probe into alleged violations committed by both forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and rebels trying to topple him.

The independent three-member commission of inquiry, headed by American war crimes expert Cherif Bassiouni, declined to reveal their exact travel schedule but said that it would include stops in Egypt and Tunisia.

"We are going to Libya, both the eastern and western part of Libya," Bassiouni told a news conference in Geneva. "An investigation has to be fair, impartial and independent. This is what we intend to do. We are leaving Geneva on Sunday we hope to return by the ened of the month."
