Libyan Rebel Commander Assasinated

CNN:

he commander of Libya's rebel army was killed in Benghazi along with two senior officers on Thursday, rebel leaders announced just hours after claiming big successes on the battlefield.

The death of Gen. Abdul Fattah Younis came after the rebels' Transitional National Council sought Younis for questioning about military matters and alleged ongoing ties to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, according to what Younis' supporters told journalist James Hider of the Times of London.

Hider described the events surrounding Younis' death as "extremely murky," but he said the rebel army appeared to be on the brink of a rift.

This in quite interesting considering the west just released a whole pile of money to the rebels.

Coup? SNAFU?
