Attack against Benghazi mosque, 1 dead and 55 injured

The Central Security Chamber of Benghazi, which is formed of army and police forces, confirmed that the bombing killed a second person.

Twin bomb blasts struck a mosque in Benghazi in eastern Libya on Friday, killing at least one person and wounding 149 in the latest attack to target worshippers in the city.

"An explosion hit inside the Sa'ad Bin-Abada mosque in Majuri district of Benghazi during Friday prayers", said Col. Milud Zwai, spokesman for the eastern-based army's special forces.

Twin auto bomb attacks hit a mosque in Benghazi's Salmani district two week ago as the worshipers exited the mosque after the night prayer, killing 34 people and injuring more than 100 others, mostly civilians. The devices appear to have been activated remotely using a mobile phone, one military source said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Haftar, who opposes a UN-backed unity government based in Tripoli, announced Benghazi's "liberation" from militants in July last year after a three-year campaign, but sporadic violence has continued. "Prompt, impartial investigations should bring perpetrators to justice", the group said.

The LNA was battling extremists, including some linked to ISIS and al Qaeda, as well as other opponents until late past year in the Mediterranean port city.

The United Nations has been trying to mediate for years, hoping elections can help stabilize Libya. The country has been since split between rival governments in the east and the west, each backed by an array of militias.

"Turkey attaches importance for peace, security and stability to prevail in Libya and supports Libya's efforts against terrorist groups seeking to drive the country towards chaos", it added.
