Explosion at mosque in Libya's Benghazi kills 2, injures 75

Twin bombs exploded at a mosque in a busy area in the city of Benghazi on Friday, killing at least two people and wounding 75 others, a Libyan official said, in the second attack targeting the city's houses of worship in less than a month.

In January, two vehicle bombs exploded near Benghazi's largest mosque at intervals of 30 minutes, at a time when people were leaving after prayer.

At least one person has been killed and dozens more injured following a double bomb attack at a mosque in Benghazi, eastern Libya, following Friday prayers.

Medical officials said the first blast on January 23, Tuesday evening hit worshippers leaving a mosque in Benghazi's central Al Salmani district.

Al-Barghathi had earlier said that one person was killed and 55 injured. The devices appeared to have been detonated remotely.

The battles have left large swaths of the port city in ruins.

Neither minister was in the aircraft when the attack took place but the missile killed an officer and wounded two others. In November, militants killed 311 worshipers in a mosque attack in the region, the deadliest in Egypt's modern history.


There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Benghazi is controlled by the Libyan National Army (LNA), the dominant force in eastern Libya led by commander Khalifa Haftar.

"This heinous act should not provide a justification for revenge attacks".

Haftar launched his military campaign in Benghazi in May 2014 in response to a series of bombings and assassinations blamed on Islamist militants.

Libya has been in turmoil since long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi was toppled by a NATO-backed rebellion in 2011.

Haftar does not recognize the UN-backed government based in the western capital Tripoli.
