KIEV, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry has not confirmed reports about the execution of eleven Ukrainian citizens in Libya, ministry spokesman Alexander Dikusarov told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.

“The Ukrainian embassy in Tripoli has no information confirming the incident,” he said.

Earlier, the Croatian newspaper Vecernji List reported that after NATO air strikes against Libya a total of 85 foreigners from Serbia, Croatia, Ukraine, Colombia, Bosnia, and Russia, who fought with pro-Gaddafi forces, were captured near the city of Misrata and later shot to death.

According to Dikusarov, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister contacted Serbia’s ambassador to Libya who also refused to confirm the newspaper’s report about the shooting. Moreover, reports about the execution of Ukrainian subjects were refuted by doctors in Misrata. To get a clearer picture of the incident, the Ukrainian ambassador to Croatia will contact the newspaper’s headquarters.
