Bombs claim lives of two in Libya

At least two people were killed and two others wounded when three car bombs went off in the centre of the Libyan capital Tripoli.
Both the dead were civilians.

The blasts happened near to the Interior Ministry and women’s police academy which has been used recently by the government for detentions and interrogations.

The targeted buildings are in the heart of the capital and are in residential areas. The explosions took place early Sunday morning as people gathered for prayers to celebrate the end of Ramadan.

Security has been a problem in Libya even though the handover of power to the newly elected government was peaceful.

There has been sporadic violence ever since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi last year but this is the first time anyone has been killed.
