Official Says Car Bombing in Eastern Libya Kills 23 People

Tuesday, 02 August 2016 04:05 PM

CAIRO (AP) — A Libyan hospital official says 23 people have been killed and dozens wounded in a suicide car bombing in the eastern city of Benghazi.

The official says that bodies are still arriving at the hospital in the aftermath of the bombing Tuesday evening in the al-Qawarsha district on the outskirts of the city. For the past two years, fighting has been raging in Benghazi between forces under the command of Brig. Gen. Khalifa Hifter and Islamic militias.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

A coalition of Islamist militias called the Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries, which includes the al-Qaida affiliate known as Ansar al-Shariah, has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack in a statement posted on its Twitter account.
