BENGHAZI: Libyan rebels have uncovered a hit list with the names and addresses of about 60 of their leaders, during an operation to smoke out a suspected pro-Qaddafi sleeper cell, officials told AFP on Tuesday. Files with sensitive information about key members of the rebels’ political and military leadership were found at the headquarters of a Benghazi-based brigade -- now believed to have been secretly allied to Muammar Qaddafi’s regime. “There were around 60 people (on the list),” deputy interior minister Mustafa al Sagazly told AFP, including “members of the (National Transitional Council), the military council, the cabinet of the NTC executive.” “There were names and addresses,” he said, “some of the addresses were correct.” The list was found during an operation against the Katiba Nida Libya -- or Libya’s Call Brigade.
