Libyan rebel commander assassinated, rebels say

Gen. Abdul Fatah Younis, the commander of Libyan rebel forces fighting to oust longtime strongman Moammar Gadhafi, was assassinated in Benghazi on Thursday, rebel leaders said.

Younis, a former commander of Libyan forces, defected to the Benghazi-based rebel movement after it arose in February. Two other senior officers were killed with him, the National Transitional Council announced.
