At least six killed by car bomb in Benghazi, Libya

At least six people were killed and 20 wounded when a car bomb exploded in a busy street in the center of the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Thursday night, Reuters reported. 

The bomb exploded behind the Tibesti hotel, the city’s biggest, in a shopping street busy with people taking an evening stroll after a day of fasting until sunset in the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

No more details on the bombing were immediately available.


Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city, is controlled by the Libyan National Army (LNA), the dominant force in eastern Libya led by commander Khalifa Haftar.
