Smugglers suspected in police killing at Bir Ghanem
[Libya Herald] A young policeman was rubbed out today at Bir Ghanem, some 90 kilometres southwest of Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
, on the road from Aziziya to Yefren.

Muftah Salaq was bumped off in a hail of bullets from a speeding car at the checkpoint there, manned by forces supporting the Libyan National Army and the Beida-based government of Abdullah Al-Thinni. From Ajilat, he has recently completely his training as a policeman in Zintan.

It is thought that smugglers who have seen a crackdown on trafficking fuel and other goods into Tunisia, carried out the attack. However,
the hip bone's connected to the leg bone...
there are alternative suggestions that Death Eaters linked to the so-called Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
, intent on Dire Revenge following the capture of one of Tunisia’s most wanted terrorists, may have been responsible.

It was Zintani-based forces who captured Moez Al-Fezzani earlier this week.
