Car bomb explodes in Libya's Tripoli

2012-08-04 10:03

Tripoli - A car bomb exploded near the offices of the military police in Tripoli early on Saturday, a senior security source said, the first such attack in the Libyan capital since the start of a revolt that toppled the regime of Muammar Gaddafi last year.

The source said the blast slightly wounded a Tunisian national, but it could not say who might have been behind it.

A Reuters witness said police had cordoned off the area around the blast's location.

Several violent incidents have rocked Libya in recent days but these have been mostly confined to the eastern city of Benghazi.

Also in Benghazi, seven Iranian relief workers were abducted on Tuesday by an armed group just as they started an official mission as guests of the Libyan Red Crescent Association, which is still seeking to get them released.

    Whilst the ''liberators'' have moved on and focus on new/other targets, the ''liberated'' are still suffering the effects of a forcefully imposed imported version of democracy!

      The Libyan oil fields have been "liberated" from Libyans. That country's wealth fund, or some part of it worth +- $90 billion has still not been accounted for, and will never be returned to that country. It has to pay for all those bombs that were raining on that country. Nato is a terrorist organisation indeed, a modern version of pirates! Iraq x2!!

      Wow, The Libyan election process must have hurt both of you. Tough luck , for all you silly supporters of DICTATYORS/TYRANTS/MASSS MURDERERS. There is NO political party in the whole world, that has ever been elected, with your kind of politics. Just shows, that the two of you, have just got bloated empty heads !!!
