At least five people, including two children, were killed and 13 injured in a car bombing in the Libyan city of Benghazi, local media reported.

The blast took place in front of Benghazi’s Jalaa Hospital late on Friday, the Libyan Herald newspaper said. At least three of those injured were reported to be in a critical condition.

Daesh group, outlawed in a number of countries, including Russia, or their affiliates Ansar Al-Sharia were allegedly behind the attack.
