Killed, Scores Injured in Twin Bombing at Libya Mosque

Forces loyal to military strongman Khalifa Haftar patrol the roads leading into the Libyan city of Benghazi

Two people were killed and 143 others, including children, were injured on Friday when an explosion hit a mosque during Friday prayers in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, military and medical sources said.

Two weeks ago, at least 35 people were killed by twin vehicle bombings near another mosque in Benghazi.

At least 62 people were wounded in the attacks on the Saad Ibn Ibada mosque near the Majouri district of Libya's second city during Friday prayers.

"A vehicle bomb exploded near the mosque of Abu Huraia", wrote the website Al Wasat, quoting the television 'Libya Roha Al Watan".

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. "Prompt, impartial investigations should bring perpetrators to justice", the mission said on Twitter.

The birth certificate also reveals that Stormi was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on February 1 at 4:43 p.m. The photo has surpassed Beyonce's twins photo and is now the most liked Instagram on the platform with over 15 million likes.

The LNA, led by Commander Khalifa Haftar, a likely aspirant in the upcoming Libyan elections is attempting to restore stability in the region and has made a pledge to stop the anarchy that ensued after the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi, seven years ago.

Haftar launched his military campaign in Benghazi in May 2014 in response to a series of bombings and assassinations blamed on Islamist militants.

The LNA has reportedly been targeted in several small scale attacks in recent months.

Haftar does not recognise the UN-backed government based in the western capital Tripoli. The country has been since split between rival governments in the east and the west, each backed by an array of militias. Security in many parts of Libya is poor.
