Libya: Abdeljalil to be questioned on death of gen. Younes

08 November, 12:57

(ANSAmed) - Tunis, November 8 - A court in Benghazi has authorized the questioning of the National Transitional Council (CNT) President Mustapha Adeljalil over the circumstances of the death of general Abdel Fatah Younes, the military leader of Libyan anti-Gaddafi insurgents, who was killed in a mysterious attack last July, the online edition of Tunisie Numerique reports.

Younes, who was fighting at the front, had been recalled in Banghazi to be questioned on unspecified issues concerning the conduction of military operations.

The general, a personal friend of Gaddafi until he became the actual number two of the regime, defected in the spring of last year and became a leading member of the insurgency, quickly rising to become one of its military leaders.

However, many members of the rebel movement mistrusted him, suspecting that Gaddafi's efforts to defeat rebels was part of his unexpected defection. Younes was soon at odds with another important military leader of rebels, Khalifa Hifter. (ANSAmed)
