Killed, Scores Injured in Twin Bombing at Libya Mosque

A dynamite attack has been carried out against a mosque in Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city, which caused 1 death and 55 injured, according to two local media outlets on Friday.

The security source said one bomb had been hidden in a coffin in the courtyard of the mosque and another in a shoe cabinet at the entrance.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as at the time of filing this report.

"This heinous act should not provide a justification for revenge attacks".

Two weeks ago, around 35 people were killed by a twin bombing at a mosque in the same city.

"Direct or indiscriminate attacks against civilians are prohibited under global humanitarian law and constitute war crimes", UNSMIL said in a post on Twitter.

The toll was one of the highest from a single attack since Libya slid into turmoil after the uprising that toppled Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Benghazi has seen often seen fighting between forces loyal to the self-styled Libyan National Army and Islamist militia opponents.

Haftar, who opposes a UN-backed unity government based in Tripoli, announced Benghazi's "liberation" from jihadists in July last year after a three-year campaign, but sporadic violence has continued.

Following last months bombing in Benghazi, video footage emerged of 10 blindfolded men being executed at the site of the attack.

Mr al-Werfalli is wanted by the ICC for allegedly carrying out a number of similar killings.

He does not recognise the UN-backed Government based in the western capital Tripoli.

The United Nations has been trying to mediate for years, hoping elections can help stabilize Libya.
