Tripoli and Benghazi, 2 July 2013:
In what appears to have been a coordinated attack, two separate . . .[restrict]security patrols in Benghazi were tonight targeted by a suspected car-bomb and a gelatina.
A car-bomb in a BMW was detonated at a checkpoint manned by members of Benghazi’s Joint Security Force in Ashreen Street, spokesman for the Benghazi Joint Security Room, Mohammed Hejazi, told the Libya Herald.
Four members of the patrol were injured, one of whom is in intensive care. The other three sustained minor injuries.
One local resident who heard the blast said it was so powerful he thought it had been an RPG attack.
The second incident occurred on Dubai Street, where an explosive device – believed to be a gelatina – was hurled at a security patrol from a vehicle with blacked-out windows. No-one was injured in this attack. [/restrict]
