TRIPOLI, Libya — A security official in Libya says the head of military intelligence in the eastern city of Benghazi has been shot and killed.

The official said the killing of Col. Fatallah Abdel-Rahim al-Qazeri occurred Friday in the eastern city of Darna, known as a stronghold of the Islamic extremist militia group Ansar al-Shariah, blamed for a series of deadly attacks.

The official said that gunmen opened fire on al-Qazeri in front of his house after he arrived from a relative's wedding. The official said al-Qazeri had been named as head of military intelligence only this month.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of fear of retribution.
