Car bomb explodes outside hospital in Libya's Benghazi

A car bomb that exploded on Monday in the parking lot of a Benghazi hospital killed at least 15 people and wounded 30, Libya's deputy interior minister said.

"Fifteen people have been killed and at least 30 were wounded in the explosion of a car bomb near the hospital," Abdullah Massoud said citing a preliminary toll.

The attack in Libya's second city struck in the car park of Al-Jala hospital, a security official told AFP earlier.
