Police officer Naji Hamad, one of the organisers of the "Save Benghazi" protest last September, narrowly escaped a murder attempt on Monday (December 3rd), Libya Herald reported.
"He was walking out of his home this morning when a group of men opened fire," Bilal Bettamir said. "They hit his brother-in-law and he died. He was only 19 or 20 years old. He was an artist and he was innocent."
On September 21st, some 30,000 peaceful demonstrators took to the streets for the "Save Benghazi" rally. The event was organised to pay tribute to US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the other Americans killed in the assault on the US consulate in Benghazi and to demand an end to the power of militias.
