TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A car belonging to an Egyptian diplomat was blown up near his home in the eastern Libyan city Benghazi on Monday, a day after two people in the capital Tripoli in bombings authorities blamed on supporters of the country's deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi.
Security sources told Reuters a homemade device exploded underneath the vehicle of the Egyptian consulate's first secretary Abdelahim Rifai. No one was hurt in the attack.
The sources described the blast as a "criminal act".
