    Frenchman killed, others arrested at checkpoint in Libya’s rebel-controlled Benghazi

    By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, May 12, 7:52 PM

    PARIS — The French government says a French citizen has been killed at a checkpoint in the Libyan rebel stronghold of Benghazi.

    The Foreign Ministry says five French citizens were detained at a police check. One of the five was shot and died later in the hospital.

    The ministry did not identify any of the five.

    Officials in Libya’s rebel administration say the victim was a French military contractor, and he was shot in the back Wednesday in unclear circumstances.

    The sources in Benghazi’s interior security and the office of the administration’s spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to reporters.

    They said the Frenchman had entered Libya by road from Egypt on May 10.
