Libya: Bomb Hits Benghazi Police Station

A bomb exploded early Thursday morning (January 31st) at a Benghazi police, Libya Herald reported. No casualties or major damage to the Al-Birkah facility were reported.

A similar bomb attack on Tuesday struck an unused United Nations building in the city's Ghut Shaal district.

The police station blast is the latest in a series of attacks on Benghazi security officers. At the beginning of January, Lieutenant-Colonel Nasser Al-Moghrabi of Benghazi's Criminal Investigation Department was killed execution-style by a single gunshot to the head.

Two Benghazi police officers also died this month in separate car bombings.
