TRIPOLI: An Egyptian worker has died in the eastern city of Benghazi.
He was working for prominent Libyan activist Salwa Bughaighis, who was assassinated on Thursday.
Saleh Ahmad was wounded in his leg during the attack on her house.
While in the hospital he was called as a witness in Bughaighis’s murder case, but he was returned to the hospital dead.
A medical source told Libya’s Al-Wasat news website that Ahmad was brought to the hospital by the police, adding that his body bore torture marks.
Ibrahim al-Sharaa, the spokesman for Benghazi’s Joint Security Room, has said that investigations have been launched to know the reason behind Ahmad’s death.
Bughaighis, one of Libya’s most prominent female activists, was assassinated when gunmen stormed her house on Thursday.
