The former Gaddafi regime officials sentenced to die by firing squad included former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi and ex-prime minister Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, Sadiq al-Sur, chief investigator at the Tripoli state prosecutor's office, told a televised news conference in the capital.

The lion, which was a popular attraction among visitors to the Hwange National Park, was tempted outside the park using bait and then shot earlier this month. The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force charity named the alleged trophy hunter as Walter Palmer from Minnesota, saying he had paid $50,000 for the hunt.
