2030 GMT: Big news from Libya tonight as the opposition National Transition Council has announced the death of its military commander, General Abdel Fattah Younes and two other officers.
The three men appear to have been slain by an assassination squad, possibly a "sleeper cell", in the opposition centre of Benghazi.
Earlier today the opposition had announced that Younes, the former Minister of Interior under Muammar Qaddafi, was going to be detained for questioning over his family's ties to the regime. Tonight the Council said Younes had been killed before he was interrogated.
The Council has announced three days of mourning for the slain commander.
