Amnesty: New Libyan rulers may repeat Gaddafi's abuses

LONDON, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Libya's new rulers are in danger of repeating human rights abuses commonplace during Muammar Gaddafi's rule, including arbitrary arrest and torture, Amnesty International said on Wednesday.
Jalal al-Galal, a spokesman for Libya's new ruling National Transitional Council (NTC), told Reuters the council leadership would surely look into the human rights group's report.
"(NTC Chairman) Mustafa Abdel Jalil has said time and time again that he will not tolerate abuse of prisoners and has made it abundantly clear that he will investigate any such allegations," he said.
