Arab Spring! Former Qaddafi Bodyguard Murdered in Honor Killing

Libya has become the go to haven for radical Islamists on the run.


Security authorities in Cairo have found Zahraa al-Bughaishi, one of the female bodyguards of former Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi, stabbed to death in her apartment in Nasr City, amidst speculations that “honour” was probably the motif behind the killing.

Bughaishi was found slain in her apartment, according to her sister, who said that the victim’s mobile phone had been shut for five days and that she rushed to her house in suspicion of something wrong.

“I knocked the door several times, but there was no answer,” the plagued sister said. “Then, with the help of the victim’s neighbors, we destroyed the door to find al-Bughaishi stabbed to death in her bedroom.”

The building’s keeper told the police that he had seen the victim’s brother leaving the flat hours before the crime was discovered and no one came in after that. The brother left for Libya after the incident.

Five days is a rush? Um, yeah.
