Car Bombs Kill 33 in Benghazi

Twin car bombs exploded as people left a mosque in a residential area of the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, killing 33 and wounding over 30 in an attack timed to cause mass casualties among first responders, officials said. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings, AP reported. The United Nations condemned the attack on social media, saying that direct or indiscriminate attacks on civilians are prohibited under international humanitarian law and constitute war crimes. Libya fell into chaos following the ouster and killing of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, and since 2014 it has been split between rival governments and parliaments based in the western and eastern regions, each backed by different militias and tribes. The self-styled Islamic State fighters had established footholds amid the disorder but have been mostly driven out of the main cities.
