Benghazi, 2 March 2014:
Two separate attacks in Benghazi today left one man dead and another injured.
A member of the . . .[restrict]Saiqa Special Forces, Imran Juma Al-Abeidi, died from injuries sustained after an explosive device under his car was detonated, in the Salmani district of the city. He was rushed to Benghazi Medical Centre but died there of his injuries.
The blast happened this afternoon and was witnessed by staff and students coming out of two nearby colleges. They were so shocked by what they saw that they staged a small protest in the district.
In a separate incident, a former member of the Qaddafi-era internal security apparatus, who had since worked in retail, was severely injured after being targeted by gunmen. He was shot in the head in Benghazi’s Sabri district, according to a source close to the city’s Security Directorate. [/restrict]
