Benghazi, 1 December 2015:
The head of the Libyan judiciary, Omar Al-Hijazi, escaped an assassinate attempt last night in . . .[restrict]Beida. A explosive device, believed to be a hand-made gelatina bomb, is reported to have exploded under his car. However he was not in it at the time and no one else was hurt either. Nor was there any damage other than to the car.
The identity of whoever was responsible is unknown.
Beida is considered one of the safest places in Libya at present, although there have been some terrorist attacks. Just over a year ago, five soldiers died in a suicide bomb attack outside nearby Labraq airport. In July 2014, a large car bomb exploded outside the old parliament building in the town, used by the Constitution Drafting Assembly, causing extensive damage but no casualties as it was not in session at time.
A small explosive device exploded near the building a couple of months later, but again without casualties. [/restrict]
