Spokesman: Car bomb in eastern Libya kills at least 30

The Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) A Libyan army spokesman says a massive car bombing has struck a town in the country's east, killing at least 30 people, according to initial reports.

The spokesman, Mohammed Hegazi, told The Associated Press that a car bomb exploded next to a gas station in the eastern town of Qubba where motorists had lined to fill their tanks on Friday.

Hegazi says scores have also been wounded in the blast. He says the gas station is close to the towns' security headquarters.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which Hegazi says bore the hallmarks of Islamic militants who have battled the army for months in and around the eastern city of Benghazi.

Libya has sunk into chaos, four years since longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi's ouster and death.
