According to local hospital officials, 23 people have been killed following a car bombing in the Libyan city of Benghazi, with dozens more wounded.
The suicide attack was targeting security forces, and occurred in the Guwarsha district, a residential area. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack at this time.
Libya has been in a state of turmoil since 2011, when civil war broke out in the country and long-standing leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown. The country has been contested by two rival governments — the internationally-recognized Council of Deputies based in Tobruk and the Tripoli-based General National Congress.
The Government of National Accord has failed so far to unite the country.
