Two dead in Libyan car bomb explosion


Two people were killed and four wounded in a car bombing at a checkpoint west of Libya’s biggest oil ports, a senior security official said.

Victims included a guard and a civilian at the checkpoint about 70 km from Ras Lanuf, one of the ports in Libya’s eastern oil crescent, he said.

Islamist militants staged several attacks targeting security forces at checkpoints in the area in recent months.
