Tripoli, 16 November 2013:
A Tawerghan was murdered this morning in a raid on the Tawerghan refugee camp in . . .[restrict]Fallah district, a Tawergha official has told the Libya Herald.
He was killed, according to refugee activist Emad Ergai, when three armed men arrived at about 9.30 am in a vehicle marked “Steadfast Misrata” and started started shooting indiscriminately. Ergai also claimed that five others were wounded, two of them critically. The two were taken to Tripoli Central Hospital, he said. The other three were being treated in the camp clinic.
According to a Facebook site, the dead man was named Abdulmutallab Abu Bakr Abu Zataya. He is said to have been shot in the head. The site said the attackers had been armed with Kalashnikovs and initially could not enter the camp because the gate had been shut as a precaution following yesterday’s slaughter in nearby Gharghour.
It is unclear if the alleged attacks are linked to yesterday’s tragedy.
This is an update of the earlier story which mistakenly reported that six Tawerghans had been killed. The Libya Herald apologises for the error. [/restrict]
