BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – Two people were killed and at least 75 were injured when a twin-bombing struck a mosque in the Majouri district of Benghazi on Friday.
Local residents soon began clear-up operations in the Saad Ibn Ibada mosque, which was littered with debris and broken glass.
According to a military spokesperson, explosive devices were placed in bags that were left at the mosque’s entrance.
They were then detonated via a mobile phone just before Friday prayers.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
The bombing was the second of its kind in two weeks, following a blast which claimed the lives of 35 people.
