Abdel Fattah Younes: Libyan Rebel Commander Killed
Abdel Fattah Younes Killed by Gunmen in Benghazi
Abdel Fattah Younes, commander of the Libyan rebels' military forces, was killed by gunmen, along with two of his aides, on July 28.
Younes was killed shortly after being arrested on suspicion of maintaining ties with Muammar Gaddhafi's regime.
National Transitional Council leader Mustafa Abdul Jalil implied that the gunmen were tied to Gaddhafi; Younes was Libya's Interior Minister before defecting to join the rebels.
Jalil said that the gunmen have been arrested.
Younes was Gaddafi's interior minister before defecting to the rebels early in the uprising, which began in February.
Abdul Jalil said that Younes had been summoned for questioning regarding "a military matter." He said Younes and his two aides were shot before they arrived for questioning.
