An assistant to the commander of Benghazi's Rapid Intervention Security Force was murdered by gunmen outside a hospital, and an officer in the Benghazi Security Directorate escaped an assassination attempt as he drove to work. Masked gunmen killed two people and seriously wounded five more outside a Benghazi hotel in an attack on Ubaidi tribesmen who were calling for an investigation into the 2011 murder of Major-General Abdel-Fattah Younis. Algerian officials say Libya's nearly 1,000- kilometer border with Algeria is guarded by some 14 Salafist Tuareg militias, not by Libyan soldiers.
