Attack against Benghazi mosque, 1 dead and 55 injured

At least one person has been feared killed while more than 50 others have been injured in a bomb blast at a mosque in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi.

Speaking about the blast, Benghazi's Security Directorate Spokesperson, Mutaz al-Mu'tri, said two bomb bags had been used in the attack.

The devices, placed inside bags, appear to have been activated remotely using a mobile phone, a military source said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

"Direct or indiscriminate attacks against civilians are prohibited under worldwide humanitarian law and constitute war crimes", the mission added, calling for "prompt, impartial investigations to bring perpetrators to justice".

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

Flu hospitalizations highest on record — CDC
Hilda Roque-Dieguez said , "This year I already have two patients in the hospital with the Influenza A, actually". In New Jersey, there have been over 7,300 flu cases confirmed this season and one child death .

The incident comes weeks after a double auto bombing in Benghazi killed at least 35 people.

Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city, witch is controlled by the Libyan National Army, led by eastern-based commander Khalifa Haftar.

The LNA was battling extremists, including some linked to ISIS and al Qaeda, as well as other opponents until late past year in the Mediterranean port city. Security in many parts of Libya is poor.

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.

Video showed Mahmoud al-Werfalli - who was already wanted by the International Criminal Court over 33 suspected extra-judicial killings - apparently shooting dead the detainees at the scene of the blasts. He does not support the government in the western capital Tripoli, back by the United Nations. The country has been since split between rival governments and militias.
