Militants bomb Egyptian diplomat’s car in Benghazi

A car belonging to an Egyptian diplomat has been blown up near his home in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi in the latest incident highlighting the continuing instability in the country following last year’s revolution. 

The bombing took place a day after two people were killed in the capital Tripoli in attacks which authorities have blamed on supporters of deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi. 

Meanwhile, police diffused more car bombs throughout the capital as security levels were raised across the country. The latest round of violence comes just days ahead of the anniversary of the capture of Tripoli by rebels and just weeks after the country’s first free election in more than four decades. 

Authorities are still trying to disarm various militia groups throughout the country who have refused to lay down arms and cede power to the national government.
