Tripoli, 12 October 2016:
The pregnant wife of one of the leading Salafists in Khoms died today when gunmen tried to kill her husband.
According to reports from Khoms, 100 kilometres east of Tripoli, gunmen started firing at Nasser Abu Sabah who was driving in the town with his wife at the time. She was hit and died instantly.
The attackers are unknown. Although there have been some clashes between rival families in Khoms it is suspected they may be Islamic State (IS) sympathisers. Although IS dogma is derived from Salafism, it has regularly targeted Libyan Salafists, regarding them as ideologically tainted.
