A car bomb has damaged the Libyan foreign ministry in Benghazi. There are no reports of any injuries.
Officials say the device went off at dawn and caused extensive damage to several buildings.
It comes a year after the attack on the US consulate in which four Americans were killed. Washington initially said the assault had grown out of anti-Western protests. But it later turned out that Islamist militants were the perpetrators, marking the 11th anniversary of al Qaeda’s September 11 attacks on the United States.
