Benghazi, 26 November 2013:
As the people of Benghazi began three days of mourning for those killed in yesterday’s fighting . . .[restrict]in the city, killers struck again. A soldier from an army checkpoint was gunned down shortly after he went off duty.
The body of Mohamed Omar Ammami, a non-commissioned officer in the Benghazi unit assigned to protect the perimeter of the town and its key installations was discovered this morning. Ammami had been going home after working on check point on the Hawari Road, close to a Man-Made River installation.
The fresh murder added to the general air of sadness at the fighting which had raged in the city centre as well as the Al-Birka and Ras Ebeida districts.
Over and above the three days of mourning, the local council and civil society organisations have announced a general strike in protest at the violence,
