    Many Libyans are in shock following the murder of one of Libya's most prominent human rights activists, killed at her home on the day of country's general election.
    She was identified as perhaps the most charismatic figure in Libya's women's movement, supporting a successful campaign to establish minimum quotas for female lawmakers in parliament. She also opposed moves to make the wearing of the hijab compulsory, and her views brought her into conflict with the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist extremists.

    "The killing seems intended to silence critics and muzzle dissent," said Hanan Salah of Human Rights Watch. "Her conviction that dialogue is the only way out for Libya is now forever silent."
