Tripoli - A car bomb attack on a security post in the Libyan city of Misrata on Wednesday left one dead and four wounded, local government and medical sources said.

The municipal council of Misrata, 200km east of Tripoli, said the post in the Saddada area was the target of "a cowardly terrorist attack" that killed one guard.

It said two of the four other wounded guards were in serious condition.

A medical source at Misrata hospital confirmed the casualty toll from the bombing, for which there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

The Islamic State jihadist group (ISIS) has repeatedly targeted the same security post in Misrata, including in an April 2015 suicide bombing that left four dead.
