A UN human rights team set up to investigate violations in Libya will leave Sunday from Geneva to undertake a field mission, the head of the team, Cherif Bassiouni said Friday.

"Our travel schedule for reasons which you'll appreciate is not going to be made public," said Bassiouni, who heads the team of three.

"There're security issues preventing us from telling you exactly when we're leaving, when we're arriving and where we're stopping but we're leaving Geneva on Sunday, and we hope to return by the end of the month, God willing," he added.
