The International Criminal Court (ICC) yesterday accused Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to use rape as a weapon of war against hundreds of women, in a bid to curb the rebels fighting for his resignation.

There is evidence that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi ordered mass rape and sexual drug shipments purchased for the troops to attack the women, “said Luis Moreno-Ocampo, chief prosecutor of the ICC, based in the Dutch city of The Hague.

Speaking to the press, Moreno-Ocampo said that this is a new aspect of the repression of Colonel Gaddafi, who will join the other charges brought against him, according to a report of Radio Nederland.
