A security official in Libya says the head of military intelligence in the eastern city of Benghazi has been shot and killed.
The official said that gunmen opened fire on al-Qazeri in front of his house after he arrived from a relative's wedding. The official said al-Qazeri had been named as head of military intelligence only this month.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of fear of retribution.
Libya has witnessed a string of assassinations and bombings targeting security forces, military, and activists over the past two years.
