A high-profile military prosecutor has been killed in Libya's eastern capital, Benghazi, which has seen a spate of bombings and attacks in recent weeks.
Juma Obaidi al-Jazawi, a military prosecutor blamed by some for involvement in the killing of the commander-in-chief of Libya's rebel forces last year, was shot dead as he left a city mosque.
Last July Jazawi signed an order for the arrest of the former commander Abdul Fatah Younes. Hours after Younes was arrested, separated from his bodyguards and taken to Benghazi for questioning, his burned, bullet-riddled body was found dumped in the town.
Jazawi has never explained the reason he ordered the arrest of Younes, and the authorities have yet to solve the case. His killing comes as Benghazi suffers an escalating campaign of violence that the government seems powerless to stop.
Skinner-And then I get incredulous emails from people who are shocked, shocked that discussion of chicken -- chicken fercryinoutloud -- is not allowed. As if the discussion of chicken is something that is vitally important and that everyone is really interested in.
