Benghazi, 29 September 2013:
Three security officials were murdered in separate attacks in Benghazi today, according to the spokesman for . . .[restrict]Benghazi Joint Security Room, Abdullah Al-Zaidi.
Colonel Abdulkadir Mohamed Ahmed Al-Madani, Associate Director of Intelligence in the eastern region was seven shots by unknown assailants in a black Jeep in front of his home in the city’s Laithi district. He died instantly, Zaidi told the Libya Herald. One of his sons who was with him was also shot and was taken to hospital.
Helicopter pilot Ali Adam Aldgara died when a bomb blew up under his car in the Suq Zamzam area.
Reports elsewhere said just the two were killed today. However, Zeidi insisted three had been killed. He named the third victim as Najib Belhassan Al-Zway, a member of the Preventive Security Service. Zeidi said he also died in a car bomb attack but did not say where it happened. There are unconfirmed reports, however, that it was not in Benghazi.
Today’s murder spree in the city, the worst in months, will do nothing to promote ideas that the crisis in the east is subsiding.
