BENGHAZI - Four people were killed when security forces clashed with armed demonstrators outside a police station in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Thursday, security sources said.

Two special forces soldiers, one Islamist militiaman and a civilian were killed in the incident, the sources said.

They added the violence was believed to be linked to the recent detention of two men in connection with several assassinations of security officials in the country's second city.

About 10 people were wounded in the violence, including two badly injured policemen, hospital officials said. Colonel Salah Buhlaiga, the head of special forces in Benghazi, told Reuters he was one of the wounded.
