Italian consul in Benghazi escapes shooting unhurt

An Italian diplomat has come under fire in Libya's second city, Benghazi, but escaped unharmed.

Guido De Sanctis, the Italian consul in the city, was travelling in his bullet-proof car when unidentified gunmen opened fire.

The security of diplomats in Benghazi has caused concern for foreign governments following the death of US ambassador Christopher Stevens.

He was killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi last September.

The BBC's Rana Jawad in Tripoli says the circumstances of Saturday's shooting are unclear, but incidents of this kind have been all too common in Benghazi.

It is also unclear how the incident will affect Libyan-Italian relations.

At a recent economic forum, the Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said security in Libya was essential to future Italian investment in the country.

Our correspondent says there has been a visible rise in Islamist militants in Benghazi since the civil war that toppled Muammar Gaddafi.

They are being blamed for the deadly attack on the US consulate on 11 September and recent assassinations of local police chiefs.

Well, well, well, LOOKIE HERE!

Judicial Watch: Defense, State Department Documents Reveal Obama Administration Knew that al Qaeda Terrorists Had Planned Benghazi Attack 10 Days in Advance

Administration knew three months before the November 2012 presidential election of ISIS plans to establish a caliphate in Iraq

Administration knew of arms being shipped from Benghazi to Syria

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts. The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria. The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

The documents were released in response to a court order in accordance with a May 15, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against both the DOD and State Department seeking communications between the two agencies and congressional leaders “on matters related to the activities of any agency or department of the U.S. government at the Special Mission Compound and/or classified annex in Benghazi” (Judicial Watch v U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Department of State(No. 1:14-cv-00812)).
