Ni libyske soldater ble drept i Benghazi tirsdag av en selvmordsbomber og påfølgende sammenstøt med islamister.

Nine Libyan soldiers were killed in the eastern city of Benghazi on Tuesday by a suicide bomber and in ensuing clashes between troops and Islamist fighters, medics and military sources said.


A suicide bomber rammed a car laden with explosives into a group of soldiers during a street battle in the city centre near Benghazi’s Mediterranean port, killing three soldiers and wounding eleven, medics said.

Shortly afterwards, Islamist fighters blamed by the army for the suicide bombing attacked troops loyal to the official government in the same area. Six more soldiers were killed and 10 wounded in the fighting, medics said.

EU fantaserer av og til om å gripe inn i Libya. Det er tomt prat. Deler av Benghazi er skutt i stykker og ser ut som Aleppo.
