Bodyguard of Palestinian commander 'killed in Lebanon'

Dec. 15, 2011 3:05 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 15, 2011 10:44 P.M.)
BEIRUT (Ma'an) -- The bodyguard of a top Palestinian commander was shot dead on Wednesday in a refugee camp in southern Lebanon, a local official told Lebanese media.

"At around 10:00 p.m., a masked gunman shot and killed Ashraf Qadiri at his shop here in the Ain al-Hilweh camp," Munir Maqdah, in charge of security at the camp near Saida, told Now Lebanon.

Qadiri was a bodyguard for Mohammed Abdel Hamid Issa, alias "Al-Lino," the head of Palestinian party Fatah's police force in Ain al-Hilweh, according to the Beirut-based news site.

The shooting was the second such incident targeting one of Issa's bodyguards, Now said.
