BENGHAZI - The family of
the Libyan rebels' slain military commander said on Monday
little effort was being made to find out who had killed him in
what they called an act involving conspiracy, treason and
General Abdel Fattah Younes was shot dead on Thursday with
two aides at some point after he was summoned back from the
front line by the Transitional National Council (TNC), the rebel
leadership in their stronghold of Benghazi.
After two days of confusion, rebels said the assailants were
militiamen allied to the rebels in their struggle to overthrow
Muammar Gaddafi, raising questions about divisions and
lawlessness within rebel ranks.
Family members say they have received scant details from the
TNC on the circumstances of his death and that no steps have
been made to question those behind it.
