Libya: Car-bomb kills 3 in Benghazi
Among those killed in the attack in the city’s central Keesh district was activist Mohamed Buqaiqis, who headed an anti-corruption body.
Khalil Quwedar, a spokesman for the Benghazi hospital, said Buqaiqis – along with 17 injured people – was admitted to the hospital following the attack.
The bodies of two civilians and four injured people were transferred to Al-Galaa hospital, according to spokesperson Fadia al-Barghuthi.
No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
Libya has remained in a state of turmoil since 2011, when a bloody uprising ended with the ouster and death of longtime strongman Muammar Gaddafi.
