BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:50 A.M.) – At least 22 people were killed by a double car bombing in the coastal city of Benghazi on Tuesday, with a further 30 injured according to reports.

The first blast took place outside a mosque as people left following evening prayers, with a subsequent detonation on the same street as emergency services arrived.

According to reports, one of the victims was Ahmed al-Feitouri, the head of investigation and arrest unit at the general command of the east Libyan security forces.

No group or individuals have taken responsibility for the attack and medics in the area suspect the death toll will rise.
