TRIPOLI — Libyan authorities said on Monday that three men suspected of planning bomb attacks were killed in a sting operation outside the capital.
“The brain of the operation refused to surrender and fought fiercely which resulted in the death of three people, including him,” said Saleh Darhoub, spokesman of the ruling National Transitional Council (NTC).
Five members of the interior ministry brigade which carried out the sting operation on Sunday were wounded.
The clashes took place in a farm in Al-Aziziya, 40 kilometres (25 miles) south of the capital, he said. — Agencies
