ZINTAN, Libya — Libya’s rebel government announced Friday that its top military chief, Gen. Abdul Fattah Younis, was assassinated by its own rebel fighters, who dumped his bullet-ridden and burned body outside Benghazi.

A brigade leader tasked with transporting Younis from the front line near the oil town of Brega to the rebel capital of Benghazi confessed that his lieutenants killed Younis and two aides Thursday, the rebels’ oil and finance minister, Ali Tarhouni, said at a news conference Friday night.

Younis was to have appeared before a military committee investigating allegations that he had maintained ties with Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi after defecting from the government to the rebel side in February.

Tarhouni said the assassins were members of the Abu Obaida Aljarah brigade, one of dozens of autonomous units that answer, more or less, to the central authority of the rebel council. The rebel government offered no motive for the killing.
