At least 40 people have been killed and 70 injured in a multiple bomb attack in the east Libyan town of al-Qubbah, local sources say.

Three bombs exploded, targeting a petrol station, a police station and the home of parliamentary speaker Agila Salah, a security source told media.

Mr Salah said the attack appeared to be retaliation for recent Egyptian air strikes on ISIS militants.

Egypt struck after the group killed 21 Egyptian Christians it had abducted.

Mr Salah announced seven days of mourning for the bomb victims.
