A car bomb has exploded outside a hospital in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi.

Reports on the number killed by the blast vary between 3 to 15 people, with up to 30 wounded. One restaurant was destroyed and nearby buildings were heavily damaged by the explosion.

Benghazi was the stronghold of the uprising against former leader Muammar Gaddafi, and security remains a concern with Islamist attacks and protests by militia in recent weeks.
