Benghazi - A bomb exploded under the car of an Egyptian diplomat in Libya's second city Benghazi on Monday without causing any injuries, a security source in the city said.

"Unidentified people in a vehicle that passed in front of the home of the first secretary at the Egyptian consulate threw a home-made device at his car which was parked outside," the security official said on condition of anonymity.

"The car exploded but no one was hurt," he said.

The diplomat, Abdelhamid al-Rafii, declined to comment about the incident.
