1 dead, 62 injured in Libya mosque attack

 

In Libya, at least one dead and sixty-two injured in a mosque attack in the country’s city of Benghazi

 

The twin bombing took place during Friday prayers, with military sources telling news agency Reuters the devices seemed to have been activated remotely using a mobile phone.

 

The explosions hit the mosque at the start of weekly prayers in Libya’s second city, which lies 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) east of Tripoli, a security source told AFP.

 

One bomb was hidden in a coffin in the courtyard of the mosque and another in a shoe cabinet at the entrance, the source added.

 

It is the second time in just over two weeks a mosque in the eastern city has been targeted by a bomber.

 

On that occasion, about 35 people were killed.
