Tripoli, 17 March 2014:
The government has announced three days of national mourning, starting tomorrow, as a . . .[restrict]mark of respect for those who were killed and injured in today’s car-bomb attack on a military training facility in Benghazi.
Up to 11 people were killed in the blast and 22 injured, including five critically. Those killed were all military students aged between 18 and 28.
The government also released a statement condemning what it called an act of criminal terrorism that deliberately intended to destabilise the country through chaos and obstruct the building of state institutions.
It said no effort would be spared in tracking down the perpetrators and bringing them to justice. It added that it would take urgent action to address the security situation in Benghazi.
