By Libya Herald reporter.
Ghat, 29 May 2017:
One man has been shot dead and four of his relatives injured near Ghat in the far south-west of the country on the border with Algeria.
The dead man, named as Islam Yahya, and the other four were said to be farmers who were visiting their land in the border zone when they were attacked.
Locals say they do not know it those responsible were members of the Algerian armed forces or Algerian rebels who are known to be operating in the area. The latter are said to be supplied by people from Yahya’s village of Fayot.
The wounded were taken to hospital in Obari for treatment.
