BENGHAZI: An improvised bomb exploded outside the headquarters of the public prosecutor in the Libyan city of Benghazi causing material damage but no fatalities, a security source said yesterday.
“Initial evidence suggests the device was a suitcase packed with high yield explosives (TNT),” an investigator at the scene said.
The overnight blast marked the third attack on the site in 2012. It damaged the front of the recently renovated building. The bomb also punched a hole in the ground and shattered glasses in the buildings.
