Benghazi — Libyan officials say a truck bomb at a military checkpoint outside Benghazi has killed 13 people. Authorities said the Sunday attack happened about 50 kilometers east of Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city.
"A Toyota truck approached the checkpoint and parked there," Aymen al-Abdlay, a Benghazi army officer, was quoted by Reuters as saying.
The bombing also wounded three people, leaving two of them in serious condition, and three other people are listing as missing.
A health ministry official told AFP that three bodies were taken to Al-Morj hospital morgue, while the remains of four other people as well as body parts were sent to the Benghazi medical centre.
