BENGHAZI - The head of the Libyan rebels' military campaign against Muammar Gaddafi was shot dead by assailants on Thursday, the top rebel leader said.

Libyan rebel leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil said Abdel Fattah Younes was killed by assailants after he had been summoned before a judicial committee that was looking into the military operations.

The head of the armed cell that killed Younes has been arrested, Jalil said, without giving any further details.
