Obituary: Mohammed Nabbous, 1983 – 2011

Mohammed Nabbous, a Libyan blogger and founder of Libya Alhurra TV, the first private television station established in territory controlled by the National Transitional Council (Benghazi), was reportedly killed on Saturday, while reporting on continued efforts by pro-Gaddafi forces to recapture Benghazi, in violation of an immediate ceasefire declared by the Gaddafi government itself one day earlier.

Nabbous was married, and his widow is pregnant, writes the Toronto Star, in an article with a link to a statement attributed to her.
