Bomb Kills 4 at Funeral in Libya’s Benghazi

ABOUT four people were killed and 33 wounded when a car bomb hit a funeral of a former senior military commander in the east Libyan city of Benghazi.

The funeral at Benghazi’s Huwari cemetery was for Khalifa Mismari, the assistant commander of Libya’s special forces under former leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was toppled in 2011, a military source said.

Reports say the current head of the special forces, Wanis Bukhamada, who also attended the funeral, was unharmed.

Libya has been divided between rival political and military factions based in Tripoli and the eastern part of the country since 2014.
