Libya‘s military police chief, Colonel Mustapha al-Barghathi, has been shot dead in the restive eastern city of Benghazi.

Unknown assailants gunned down Barghathi outside his home, Colonel Abdullah al-Zaidi, spokesman for the security services, told AFP.
He said Barghathi — a former rebel leader in the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi — died of head and chest wounds at the Mediterranean city’s Al-Jala hospital.
Barghathi was the first officer in Kadhafi’s army to defect and form a rebel force in the revolt, Zaidi said.
Benghazi was the cradle of the uprising that toppled Kadhafi’s regime, but has since seen a series of assassinations targeting officers in the security services.
