A young woman has been shot and killed by a member of an armed militia group in Benghazi, identified to be 23-year-old Raouf al-Darsi, local sources have confirmed.

The shooting took place in a public street in the Fuwaihat area, south of the city.

According to the sources, the 21-year-old woman was having a love affair with the militia member and seems to have decided to end up the relationship.

Al-Darsi who was reportedly an alcohol and drug addict is affiliated with the Naji Al-Zabati militia, one of Haftar's arms in Benghazi.

The city of Benghazi and the eastern region, is experiencing a state of security chaos since its fall in Haftar's hands, including murders, kidnappings, torture, and abuse, from which even children and women were not spared.
