Benghazi, Aug 7 (IANS) Libya’s rebel council chairman has said the killing of the council’s military commander was part of a conspiracy by Muammar Gaddafi, Xinhua reported.

The assassination of Abdel Fattah Younes was planned by Gaddafi and a special commission was investigating it, rebel National Transitional Council chairman Mustafa Abdul Jalil said at a press conference held in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.

The commission members included a doctor and the head of the rebel legal committee, Jalil said, without providing further details.

He, however, said it was too early to consider plans on a transitional period or post-Gaddafi period.
