A car bomb exploded in the centre of the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi killing at least seven people and injuring dozens on Thursday night.
Security officials said the dead were civilians.
The device exploded close to Benghazi’s biggest hotel, the Tibesti, where many people attend evening gatherings during the month of Ramadan.
Eight cars parked on the street lined with shops were destroyed, news agency Reuters reports.
Libya’s second city is controlled by the Libyan National Army, led by self-styled general Khalifa Haftar.
