A criminal court in the western city of Misrata has sentenced a Gaddafi-era education minister to death for murder and for inciting violence during the 2011 civil war.
A judge found Ahmed Ibrahim guilty of inciting residents in Muammar Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte to form armed gangs and fight the rebels that were seeking to overthrow the Libyan dictator. Ibrahim was also convicted of spreading false news through the local radio station and terrorising and demoralising the public.
According to Libyan law, Ibrahim will be executed by firing squad. No time frame was given.
