Libya: Rebels attend funeral of Gen Younes


Hundreds of mourners have attended the funeral of Libya's rebel military commander, Gen Abdel Fattah Younes, a day after he and two aides were shot.

There are claims that Libya's rebel military commander, who defected from Colonel Gaddafi's inner circle in February, was murdered by fighters from his own side.

Despite his unpopularity, hundreds attended his funeral in Benghazi and fired volleys of gunfire into the air.
