Car of Egyptian Diplomat Blown Up in Benghazi, Nobody Hurt
21/08/2012 11:45:00
Just a day after deadly bomb attacks in the capital Tripoli killed two people, and on the day that a group of supporters of deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi confessed to the criminal acts after being arrested, were arrested, in Benghazi on Monday, a car belonging to an Egyptian diplomat was blown up near his home in the eastern Libyan city Benghazi.

The homemade device, most probably similar to the ones that exploded on Sunday in Tripoli, exploded under the vehicle of the Egyptian consulate's first secretary Abdelhamid Rifai. Security sources said that no one was hurt.

These attacks have taken place days ahead of the first anniversary of the capture of Tripoli by revolutionaries during last year's conflict that eventually ousted from power after more than four decades dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

On Sunday, in the first fatal attacks of their kind since Gaddafi's overthrow, three car bombs exploded near interior ministry and security buildings in the Libyan capital on Sunday, killing two people and wounding three others.

Libyan security officials said have arrested 32 members of an organised network of Gaddafi loyalists linked to the attacks and later, the Deputy Interior Minister, Mr. Omar al-Khadrawi revealed that the main suspect in a cell of five has confessed to his involvement in Sunday's blasts.

The same als said that he was assisted in the criminal act by four other individuals. Three of these are currently under arrest, while the the fourth is being hunted down.

Libya has been hit by persistent instability since the overthrow of Gaddafi and the authorities are blaming Gaddafi loyalists inside Libya and financed by others from abroad of trying to destabilise the country.
