Benghazi, 9 November 2013:
Two officers working with the Crime Prevention department on Benghazi were shot and killed in . . .[restrict]the early hours of the morning in Khaleej Street, in the city’s Laithi district. The men have been named as Ali Said Ali and Adel Jehani.
According to Benghazi Joint Security Room spokesman, Abdullah Zeidi, the two were killed at around 2.15 am in a hail of bullets fired from a black jeep which then sped off. He added that the vehicle was thought to be the same as the one that had been used in previous killing in the city. A search for it was being made, he said.
Two weeks ago, there was an attempt to kill the head of the city’s Crime Prevention unit, Abdussalam Barghathi.
Last night, a police officer, Al-Sherief Al-Agaili, was shot while walking in Benghazi’s Suq Al-Badri district, just two hours after a show of force by the city’s new military supremo, Colonel Awad Saiti. [/restrict]
