TRIPOLI: A Libyan security official says gunmen have assassinated a senior official of the port of Darna, while a bombing hit a polling center elsewhere in the same eastern city known to be a stronghold of an al-Qaida inspired militia.

The official said on Wednesday that Col. Abdel-Moneim al-Dallal was shot dead in front of his house late Tuesday by unidentified assailants. Meanwhile, an explosive device blew up a school used as a polling center as the same city. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

Violence has rocked Libya over the past two years even after the end of the eight-month civil war that toppled and killed longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
