Editor’s Comment:

Moussa Ibrahim is alive, contrary to enemy media reports.

Neither he nor Khamis Gaddafi were in Bani Walid.

Khamis was martyred August 29, 2011.

Protesters attacked the HQ of the private TV station Al-Hurra in Benghazi, claiming the channel’s coverage of the Bani Walid events was used to justify assaults against the city.

­They also allegedly lashed out against the channel reporting the capture of Khamis Gaddafi.

Demonstrators broke into the building Sunday, damaging the equipment and starting a fire in one of the offices according to an AFP journalist who witnessed the scene. He says protesters were shouting “Warfalla” – the name of one of the Bani Walid-based tribes.

They also attacked at least one of the channel’s employees, while others ran away.

The channel stopped broadcasting after the attack.

On Saturday, it was reported that Khamis Gaddafi was captured and killed during the fighting in Bani Walid. Moussa Ibrahim was allegedly also seized.

Sunday’s attack on the channel also came after almost three weeks of the pro-government forces’ assault on Bani Walid.

At least 26 people were killed and over 200 more injured in Saturday violence alone, AFP reports.
