A group of Salafist sheikhs questioned Friday the morality of a police operation that led to the death of a notorious Islamist militant and one of his associates in Tripoli a day earlier.The Salafist committee called on the justice and interior ministries to allow human rights organizations to carry out investigations that would determine whether the militants were killed as a result of a premeditated operation by security forces, or due to an unexpected shootout as police said.A statement released by Internal Security Forces Friday indicated that the death of the two militants resulted from an arrest attempt and not a premeditated operation.
