In what is thought to be a car bomb, a vehicle exploded this evening in Benghazi’s Shara Jamal, not far from the sports city. There are few details about it so far although a number of casualties are reported.
“It was like an earthquake,” said one resident in the street. It had been now closed off and was swarming with police and security officials, he added.
Earlier during the day, the Libyan National Army announced that it had finally crushed militants in the city’s Ganfouda district. However, fears had already been voiced that cells of militants still in the city would continue their fight with assassinations and car bombs.
