1 killed in Libya mosque explosion

Bomb rocks Libya's Benghazi mosque

A dynamite attack has been carried out against a mosque in Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city, which caused 1 death and 55 injured, according to two local media outlets on Friday.

Medical officials said the first blast on January 23, Tuesday evening hit worshippers leaving a mosque in Benghazi's central Al Salmani district.

The devices, placed in bags at the mosque doors, appear to have been activated remotely using a mobile phone, a military source said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as at the time of filing this report. "Prompt, impartial investigations should bring perpetrators to justice", the mission said on Twitter.

On January 23, two auto bombs exploded outside a mosque, killing at least 34 people, including children, and injuring 90 others.

The LNA was battling Islamists, including some linked to Islamic State and Al Qaeda, as well as other opponents until late past year in the Mediterranean port city.

Josh Pastner: Georgia Tech Basketball Coach Accused Of Sexual Assault
Pastner filed a defamation lawsuit last month following the claims, calling the allegations "fabricated and false". It claims Pastner sexually assaulted Pendley and threatened her, if she were to tell anyone about what happened.

Fears over potential reprisals are heightened by the reported summary execution of around 10 jihadist prisoners by a commander loyal to Haftar following last month's bombings.

The fighting in Benghazi was part of a broader conflict that developed in Libya after former ruler Muammar Gaddafi was removed from power and killed in a NATO-backed uprising in 2011.

Mr al-Werfalli is wanted by the ICC for allegedly carrying out a number of similar killings.

Haftar does not recognize the UN-backed government based in the western capital Tripoli.

The UN has been trying to mediate for years, hoping elections could help stabilise Libya.
