Unknown assailants late Wednesday killed a radio host working for Libya al-Watan, local news website Al-Wasat reported Thursday.

Shots were fired at Al-Mutassim al-Warfali in Al-Salmani area in the restive city of Benghazi, a source told Al-Wasat. They left the area after killing him, the source added.

Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city, is the cradle of the 2011 uprising that toppled the late Muammar Qaddafi. Since his overthrow, the government has struggled to tackle the presence of armed militias.

Last year, a presenter with a leading Libyan TV station was also killed in Benghazi.
