BENGHAZI, Libya — Residents of Benghazi have voted for a local council in the first elections in the eastern Libyan city since the capture and killing of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi last year.
Benghazi is Libya's second-largest city. It was the birthplace and hub of the bloody uprising that toppled Gadhafi after more than four decades in power.
More than 400 people are running for 41 seats up for grabs on the local council in Saturday's elections.
Libya's third-largest city of Misrata voted for a local council in February.
