Libya accuses CIA, Mossad over killing

Libya has accused American and Israeli agents of being behind the killing of its ambassador to the Central African Republic last week.

An official statement said the Central Intelligence Agency and Mossad had planned the killing even if they had not directly carried it out.

The diplomat Al-Sanussi Abdullah Awad was shot last week Tuesday by unidentified gunmen as he left his home in the capital, Bangui.

The authorities in the Central African Republic say they will do everything possible to find and punish the attackers.
