TRIPOLI - A Libyan judge suspended the trial of a senior Gaddafi-era intelligence official on Tuesday after his defense lawyer said the proceedings were unconstitutional.

Charges against Buzeid Dorda, arrested last September in Tripoli, include killing civilians, providing weapons to kill civilians, and conspiring to provoke civil war.



"The trial has been suspended until the Supreme Court looks at an appeal I raised that could deem the trial unconstitutional," defense lawyer Dhao Al-Mansouri Awon said.

Dorda had said in July he had been denied the right to meet privately with a lawyer and had been subjected to illegal interrogations during his 10 months in detention.
