A Moammar Gadhafi-era security official has been killed in Libya's second city Benghazi, local officials said Saturday, in the latest attack highlighting a lack of security in the east of the country.

"Lieutenant-Colonel Nasser al-Magrabi was found dead on his farm last night," an official in Benghazi's criminal investigations department told AFP on condition of anonymity. ...

"He was shot," the official said.

Another official said the corpse was found "in a farm in the Sidi Faraj area" and that "investigations are now underway".

Both sources said Magrabi had worked for the former regime's reviled internal security services in Benghazi during the era of slain dictator Gadhafi, who was unseated by an uprising in 2011.

The killing comes a day after the head of Benghazi's criminal investigations department, Abdelsalam al-Mahdawi, was kidnapped at gunpoint. His whereabouts remain unknown.

Some source indicate that Nasser al-Magrabi had defected to the Benghazi rebels during the revolt. Who recently killed him is unknown. But he would have been a clued up man, familiar with that environment, and quite capable of ensuring security. Of course, one might say the same about the US ambassador, and look what happened to him. There is something very deadly going on in Benghazi.

Dirty as hell, and it STILL has not brought down the Prez, not even Hitlery, something that speaks to what a different place the USA has become.

THIS would have impeached Nixon 10 times over.

Death to the MSM.

Concur /Agree ...... Presstitute liars helping this administration are no less a criminal element in this nation than those on death row in our prisons.

That which they ignore cost lives not only here in the USA but the entire world.

My opinion.... Stay safe !
