A car bomb explosion left at least 7 people dead and wounded 20 others in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi according to local security and medical sources.


The bombing on early Friday morning took place behind the city's largest hotel, Tibetsi, on a busy market street selling mostly Syrian produce.

In further details, a local security official told AFP news agency that the victims were civilians.

Consequently, the city's Al-Jalaa Hospital confirmed the attack on Jamal Abdelnasser Street, adding that it had received at least 20 wounded persons.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.

Earlier this month, at least 11 people were reported dead after armed men, including two suicide bombers, attacked Libya's electoral commission headquarters in the capital, Tripoli.

In January, a double car bombing in Benghazi k
illed at least 35 people and left more than 50 others wounded. Ahmed al-Fituri, chief of a special investigation unit attached to the general command of east Libyan security forces, was among the casualties.
