Rebels killed Libya's Younes: rebel minister
BENGHAZI (Reuters) - Rebel fighters who were sent to bring Libyan rebel military chief Abdel Fattah Younes to Benghazi for questioning killed him and dumped his body outside the city, rebel minister Ali Tarhouni said on Friday.
Tarhouni said a militia leader who was asked to fetch Younes from the frontline near the oil town of Brega had been arrested and had confessed that his subordinates had carried out the killing. The men who fired the shots remained at large.
"It was not him. His lieutenants did it," Tarhouni told reporters in the rebel-held eastern city of Benghazi.
