Derna, 14 December 2013:
A bomb seriously damaged a restaurant on Derna’s west corniche late last night, however no . . .[restrict]was injured. The blast occurred after it had closed.
The reason for the attack is unknown although it is being reported locally and on social media sites that it is owned by a Syrian Christian.
However, local sources say that the owner who has another restaurant in the centre of town is a Lebanese man who was born in Libya, is a convert to Islam and is married to Libyan woman.
His family went to Greece during the revolution and are still there, it is reported, but he remained in Derna throughout the conflict, and since. [/restrict]
