Benghazi bomb kills 2 soldiers
A car bomb blast at an army camp in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi has killed two soldiers.
Libyan officials say the blast was carried out on Tuesday at the entrance to a special forces barracks on the road to Benghazi airport.
No group has claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.
Benghazi has been the scene of numerous attacks and political assassinations amidst an increasing power struggle among several militia groups who fought against former dictator Muammar Gaddafi during the 2011 uprising.
On March 17, ten soldiers were killed in a series of car bomb explosions that rocked a military base in the restive city.
A month earlier, twelve children were injured in an explosion inside a school in Benghazi after a man reportedly threw a grenade from a car.
Nearly three years after the fall of Gaddafi, the country is still grappling with rising insecurity as former rebels refuse to lay down arms despite efforts by the central government to impose law and order.
