` Benghazi witnesses two wave’s of explosion’s killing at least 8 people first at Military School and second at State Oil Firm ‘

#AceWorldNews A car bomb explosion killed at least eight people in Benghazi, Libya on Monday and wounded more than a dozen others, security officials told Reuters.

The blast, which targeted a military academy, is the latest evidence of the Libyan government’s struggle to contain armed militias who refuse to lay down their weapons years after rebelling against Muammar Gaddafi.

The first bomb went off just outside the gates of the military school where a class was celebrating its graduation then, hours later, a second explosion went off near the state oil firm Brega Petroleum Marketing Co.

The government deemed the event a “terrorist act,” though no group has yet claimed responsibility.
