Reuters: Navi Pillay to the rescue

Reuters correspondent Stephanie Nebehay who recently wrote a fawning public relations piece on Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, reports today that Pillay has sprung into action on behalf of the estimated 6,000 Libyans killed in the revolt thus far:
Libyan bombing may be crimes against humanity: U.N. [ya think?, ed.]
(Reuters) - Libya's aerial bombing of civilians and use of heavy weapons on city streets must be investigated as possible crimes against humanity, the top U.N. human rights official said on Thursday.
U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay also said she had received accounts of executions, rapes and disappearances in the north African country.
Reports of the "continued aerial bombardment of civilians and the use of military grade weapons and tanks on city streets" were outrageous and "would be investigated as possible crimes against humanity," the former U.N. war crimes judge said.
We eagerly await the war crimes charges, indictments, and tribunals against an Arab dictatorship that will surely come from a UN agency throttled by stalwart supporters of human rights like Saudi Arabia and Cuba.
