Iran condemns terrorist explosion in Libya's Benghazi

Politics - Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman in a statement released on Wednesday slammed terrorist explosion in Libya's second city Benghazi.

Bahram Qasemi referred to terrorists' defeats in Iraq and Syria, and said that despite these 'humiliating defeats', people of the region are target of terrorists' violence.

He underlined that countering unharnessed terrorism needs global cooperation and consensus.

The official expressed condolences with the bereaved families of the victims.

Twin car bombs outside a mosque frequented by terrorsits in Libya's second city of Benghazi have killed at least 34 people and wounded 87, hospital sources said, dispatches reported.

The bombers struck after evening prayers on Tuesday, blowing up two cars 30 minutes apart outside the mosque in the central neighborhood of Al-Sleimani.

Ahmad al-Fituri, a security official for Haftar’s forces, was among those killed, military spokesman Miloud al-Zwei said.
