Benghazi, 8 April 2014:
Two bombs exploded last night in Benghazi, one outside a school in the Sabri district and . . .[restrict]the other on a residential street in the Al-Keesh area. No casualties have been reported.
Spokesman for Benghazi Joint Security Room (BJSR) Ibrahim Al-Sharaa told the Libya Herald the first explosion was caused by a bomb placed in a rucksack outside Fatima Al-Zarh High School for Girls. He said the blast destroyed one of the school’s outer walls.
While the exact motive for the bombing is not yet clear, the high school had remained open on both Sunday and Monday in defiance of the general strike which began two days ago. There have been reports of threats against other schools and businesses in Benghazi which opened on Sunday, warning them to close for the remainder of the planned ten-strike.
The second blast took place in central Benghazi after explosives placed under a car detonated, destroying three other cars and the balcony of a nearby apartment. Sharaa speculated that the attack may have been linked to a local feud. [/restrict]
