A Libyan judge has survived an assassination attempt Saturday in the eastern city of Benghazi.
"Judge Tawfiq Nayef al-Hasi survived an attempt on his life," Marwan al-Tashani, the head of the Libyan Judges Organization, told Anadolu Agency on Saturday.
According to al-Tashani, unidentified gunmen opened fire on the judge in Benghazi's al-Hadaq district late Friday and fled the scene unscathed.
Benghazi, the second largest city in Libya, has been a hotbed of violence since the fall of the Muammar Gaddafi regime in 2011. Since then, Libya has struggled to restore order.Last Mod: 29 Mart 2014, 13:27
