Tripoli, 9 December 2013:
A Sudanese man was reportedly shot dead in Kufra today after troops tried to separate Zway . . .[restrict]and Tebu youths.
The circumstances are unclear but a Tebu source told the Libya Herald that after a verbal confrontation between groups of Zway and Tebu had turned ugly, troops from the 17th February Martyrs Revolutionary Brigade had to force rivals apart. However, it is alleged that a Zway youth returned with a Kalashnikov and in Market Street, the town’s principal thoroughfare, opened up at random on the Tebus, injuring two and fatally wounding a Sudanese, who died on his way hospital.
Social media later that a 59 year-old Zway was shot and killed in Market Street by a Tebu gang but other posts claimed that the man died when Zway youths tried to take over an armoured vehicle from an army unit.
The Tebu source said that the town was tense this evening and further violence was feared. [/restrict]
