Benghazi, 26 August 2013:
Three men were arrested today in Benghazi on suspicion of involvement in the campaign of booby-trapped . . .[restrict]vehicles, which has seen present and past-serving military and police officers assassinated or seriously injured.
The spokesman for the city’s Joint Security Room, Abdullah Al-Saidi told the Libya Herald that not all of the suspects were Libyan. He said that one of the men was injured during the arrest but did not give details of how, nor where this had happened. He did say however, that the arrests had come about in part because of information supplied by members of the public.
It is unclear if there is any connection between the capture of these individuals and yesterday’s pursuit of a vehicle thought to have been used by the two masked killers of Col Mustafa Agela Almugrbi, shot outside the Al-Ansar mosque as he left Friday prayers with his ten-year old son.
Last night, Sunday, the four occupants of a white Mitsubishi Lancer with tinted windows were chased until they abandoned the vehicle, reportedly, along with weapons and a phone, and fled into “wild country”. The security forces were said to have then surrounded the area.
