Hundreds of Libyans have attended the funeral in Benghazi of activist Abdul-Salam Al-Musmari, who was assassinated on Friday.

Al-Musmari, a well-known critic of the influential Muslim Brotherhood group, was killed by unknown assailants in a drive-by shooting in Benghazi.

The killing led to demonstrations in the capital Tripoli and other main cities, with protesters demanding that Islamist parties be dissolved.

Al-Musmari headed the February 17 Coalition, a group credited with launching the 2011 protests against the country's longtime dictator Moammar Gaddafi.

He had publicly criticised the country's Muslim Brotherhood group and recently campaigned against a sweeping law that bans anyone who served as a senior official under Gadhafi from working in government.
