Suicide car bombing injures 3 in eastern Libya


Three people were injured Friday by a car-bomb attack on a checkpoint near Libya’s eastern city of Ajdabiya, a stronghold for forces loyal to military commander Khalifa Haftar, according to a local security source, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

The source, who spoke to Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity, said the attack had killed the suicide bomber while injuring a Libyan soldier and two Sudanese passersby.

 

Libya has remained dogged by turmoil since 2011, when a bloody uprising ended with the ouster and death of President Muammar Gaddafi after more than four decades in power.

 

Since then, the country’s stark political divisions have yielded two rival seats of power -- a legislative assembly in the eastern city of Tobruk (to which Haftar is loyal) and a government based in capital Tripoli -- along with a host of heavily-armed militia groups.
