    A Libyan judge was shot dead outside a court in the eastern Libyan city of Derna, an official said. Assailants killed Mohammed Houidi on Sunday morning as he came out of a court in the city, which is known as an Islamist stronghold.

    "A car just stopped in front and gunmen fired at him," Mansour al-Hasadi, a member of Libya's national assembly from Derna, told Reuters. "He died immediately."

    Hasadi said courts in the city had only recently properly resumed work following disruption due to the 2011 war that ousted Muammar Gaddafi. As with elsewhere in the North African country, state security forces and courts there remain weak. A relative of Houidi confirmed what Hasadi said and added: "The courts only started working again and this may have upset people who have openly been calling for Islamic law to be implemented in Derna." The incident comes just weeks after courts resumed work there following the 2011 war.
