Spokesman for Benghazi Joint Security Room Ibrahim Al-Sharaa told the Libya Herald that the blast targeted Abdul Hamid Al-Imem Al-Satori, who was driving an orange Kia saloon, killing him instantly and injuring his wife and daughter.
Sharaa said the explosion was caused by an explosive device placed under the car which detonated at 8:00. The car was moving down Benghazi’s Eshrine Street when it exploded.
The Benina Airbase engineer was taken to Benghazi Medical Centre where he was pronounced dead on arrival. His wife and daughter have been taken to an other medical facility where they were receiving treatment.
Outrage sparked by the attack has led to angry protests on Eshrine Street which has been closed at several junctions. [/restrict]
