Body of Libyan rebel army leader mourned in Benghazi

BENGHAZI, Libya - Mourners brought a coffin carrying the body of Libyan rebel military commander Abdel Fattah Younes into the main square of Benghazi on Friday, his nephew told Reuters.
"We got the body yesterday here (in Benghazi), he had been shot with bullets and burned," Younes's nephew, Abdul Hakim, said as he followed the coffin through the square of the main rebel-held town. "He had called us at 10 o'clock (on Thursday morning) to say he was on his way here."
Younes was killed in mysterious circumstances on Thursday after being recalled to Benghazi from the frontline near the oil port of Brega.
