SPUTNIK – The explosion rattled an adjacent mosque in the Libyan city of Benghazi, leaving eight people dead, city residents told RIA Novosti.

“A bag with explosives was blown up near the entrance to the Abu Huraira Mosque in the Majuri area. At the moment, we know of eight dead,” a local resident told RIA Novosti by telephone.

In January, two car bombs exploded near Benghazi’s largest mosque at intervals of 30 minutes, at a time when people were leaving after prayer. According to the latest information, more than 40 people were killed, while 80 were injured.

Since 2011 Libya has been in a state of turmoil. A civil war broke out in the country after long-standing leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown.

Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city, witch is controlled by the Libyan National Army, led by eastern-based commander Khalifa Haftar. The LNA was battling Islamists, including some linked to Daesh and al-Qaeda.
