Police chief killed in Libya's Benghazi: sources
Posted on 11/21/2012 3:19:20 AM PST by tobyhill
A top security official in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi was killed in front of his home overnight on Wednesday, security officials said, in the latest violence to plague the cradle of the North African country's revolt.
Faraj al-Deirsy, head of Benghazi police, died from multiple gunshot wounds, police and interior ministry sources said.
"This happened in front of his house when unknown attackers opened fire and hit him before fleeing," a police source.
An interior ministry official confirmed that Deirsy, in charge of security in Benghazi, had been killed in front his home.
Libya has been hit by persistent instability since the overthrow of Muammer Gaddafi last year. Authorities are still trying to disarm numerous groups, mostly militias who took part in the uprising, who refuse to lay down their weapons.

Maybe Obama can put out a press release claiming this guy was behind the Benghazi attack and his Islamist freedom loving militia brothers have now brought justice, peace and love to the city.

Whoever shot him must have been upset about the rarely seen video criticizing Muslims.
