Deadly blasts hit mosque in Libya By

Forces loyal to military strongman Khalifa Haftar patrol the roads leading into the Libyan city of Benghazi

The State of Qatar has strongly condemned the attack which targeted a mosque in the city of Benghazi, Libya, killing two person and injuring dozens.

Mutaz al-Mu'tri, Benghazi's security directorate spokesperson, said two bomb bags had been used in the attack, according to Libya's 218 tv news channel. One person has been killed, according to local. "Prompt, impartial investigations should bring perpetrators to justice", the group said.

In January, two auto bombs exploded near Benghazi's largest mosque at intervals of 30 minutes, at a time when people were leaving after prayer.

Haftar does not recognize the United Nations -backed government based in the western capital Tripoli.

That attack, which took place outside the Bait Radwan mosque on January 23, left more than 50 others wounded, including a number of senior security officials.

The summary executions are believed to be carried out by Mahmoud al-Werfalli, a special forces commander for the LNA.

Benghazi, a troubled city with occasional bombings and attacks, has seen often seen fighting between forces loyal to the self-styled Libyan National Army, led by military strongman Khalifa Hifter, and Islamist militia opponents.

The battles have left large swaths of the port city in ruins.

It has since imposed strict military control on the city and other parts of eastern Libya under its control.

Haftar, who opposes a UN-backed unity government based in Tripoli, announced Benghazi's "liberation" from jihadists in July last year after a three-year campaign, but sporadic violence has continued.

The toll was one of the highest from a single attack since Libya slid into turmoil after the uprising that toppled Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Haftar supports the rival administration based in the east.
