` Libyan City of Benghazi witnesses `Car-Bomb Explode ‘outside `Military Base ‘Killing 5 Soldiers and Wounding 14 People ‘

#AceWorldNews A car bomb outside a military base in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has killed five soldiers and wounded another 14 people, according to Libyan security officials, AP reports.

The bomb went off outside the base just after an inauguration ceremony for new officers. Benghazi was the birthplace of the 2011 uprising to oust former leader Muammar Gaddafi and has seen a sharp rise in the number of attacks targeting the military and the police.

The central government in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, has proved ineffectual in controlling unruly militias, which have de facto control of many areas of the country.
