#AceWorldNews – LIBYA – June 04 – Gunmen shot dead an official at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in the central Libyan city of Sirte on Wednesday, Reuters reported, citing ICRC and local officials.
“Now they will take up their humanitarian work and prepare a medical evaluation,” International Committee of the Red Cross spokesman David Pierre Marquet said.
Local authorities said seven people were killed and about 50 injured.
The government in Kiev said security forces killed about 20 pro-Russian militants.
Kiev has sent in forces in a bid to reassert control of the restive east, inflaming the pro-Russian faction. On Saturday, the National Guard withdrew from central Mariupol, which was largely calm.
