BENGHAZI, July 31 (Xinhua) — The opposition National Transitional Council (NTC) said Sunday it is investigating the death of military commander Abdel-Fattah Younis.

NTC spokesman and vice president Abdel-Hafidh Ghoga told a press conference in the eastern city of Benghazi, the stronghold of the rebels, that there have been some “doubts” regarding the incident.

“It will be ‘totally transparent’ in revealing the result of the investigation so that those responsible will be punished,” he said.

Younis was Muammar Gadhafi’s interior minister before defecting to the rebels in February. NTC chairman Mustafa Abdel Jalil announced the death of Younis Thursday, whose body was found outside Benghazi.

The NTC has formed a committee to investigate Younis’ death.
