Car Bomb Kills Three In Libya

At least three people were killed, and a further 20 wounded, after a car bomb exploded, in the Libyan city of Benghazi.

At least three children were killed and 20 people wounded by a car bomb in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Monday, witnesses and a medical official said.

Smoke and flames were reported at the site of the explosion near the city’s Jala hospital, which witnesses said had been caused by a car bomb. A hospital official said the bodies of three children had been received.

Benghazi has been the scene of fighting between the Libyan National Army (LNA) and Islamist-led opponents for more than two years. The LNA has made major advances in this year, but faces pockets of resistance in parts of the city.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
