Libyan leader 'using hitmen'

Libyan anti-government rebels claim Gaddafi is using hitmen to carry out targeted killings.

    Recently there have been numerous assassination attempts on leading rebels in their eastern stronghold of Benghazi.

    Libyans fighting to depose Muammar Gaddafi say he is using hitmen - an invisible force - to carry out targeted killings.

    Some documents have been found, detailing those set to be killed. And many more so-called 'Gadaffi lists' are thought to exist.

    Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Benghazi.
