A girl from Benghazi has been kidnapped and raped more than once by the chief of criminal investigation department in the city, Salim Al-Badri and his companions, a source from Benghazi has disclosed.
The source confirmed on Sunday that the girl was kidnapped when she was with her husband in a sea shelter in Benghazi, adding that she is only 16 years old and has been married for a month only.

The criminality in Benghazi has been reported by The New York Times as well. It reported on February 20 that the death squad of Awliaa Al-Dam (Blood Avengers) has been tasked with kidnapping and killing Haftar’s opponents, depending on a group of extremists and Gaddafi loyalists.
