#AceWorldNews reports `Libya’s Former Prosecutor General Assassinated

Ace News Desk A Libyan security official says the former prosecutor general, Abdul-Aziz al-Hassadi, has been gunned down late Saturday in his home-town of Darna, eastern Libya.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, did not provide further details, AP reported. Al-Hassadi resigned from his office in March citing health reasons. He is the latest former official assassinated in the country since the death of former president Muammar Gaddafi, who was murdered after being captured in Oct 2011 during a civil war that saw the controversial military intervention of NATO.

Libya has witnessed a series of violence over the past months targeting various public figures and clerics around the country.
