Bombings at mosque in Libya's Benghazi kill 2, injure 75

BENGHAZI - 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.

 

The explosion took place just before Friday prayers at the Saad Ibn Ibada mosque located between Benghazi's al-Majouri and Berka districts, said Motaz Agouri, an official from Benghazi security directorate's media office. He also said that the two bombs were planted in separate rooms at the site of the mosque.

 

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
