Bombings at mosque in Libya's Benghazi kill 2, injure 75

One person was killed and 149 wounded, according to Moataz Trabelsi, spokesman for the Health Ministry of the parallel administration based in the east of the North African country.

On January 23, two auto bombs exploded outside a mosque, killing at least 34 people, including children, and injuring 90 others.

"A auto bomb exploded near the mosque of Abu Huraia", wrote the website Al Wasat, quoting the television 'Libya Roha Al Watan". A previous hospital bulletin spoke of 62 wounded.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

However, there have been conflicting reports on casualties as a result of the twin explosion.

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

The Central Security Chamber of Benghazi, which is formed of army and police forces, confirmed that the bombing killed a second person.

Haftar launched his military campaign in Benghazi in May 2014 in response to a series of bombings and assassinations blamed on extremists.

Fears over potential reprisals are heightened by the reported summary execution of around 10 militant prisoners by a commander loyal to Haftar following last month's bombings. The devices appear to have been activated remotely using a mobile phone, one military source said.

Libya has remained dogged by violence and chaos since 2011, when a bloody uprising led to the ouster and death of longtime President Muammar Gaddafi after more than four decades in power.

Haftar does not recognize the UN-backed government based in the western capital Tripoli.

The blasts took place during Friday prayers, residents said.

The LNA was battling extremists, including some linked to ISIS and al Qaeda, as well as other opponents until late previous year in the Mediterranean port city.
