Blast damages Egypt's consulate in Benghazi, Libya: Witnesses
BENGHAZI (Reuters) - A small explosion rocked the Egyptian consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Saturday, blowing out its windows and those of adjacent buildings, witnesses said.
A policeman at the scene said an Egyptian security guard was injured in the explosion, apparently caused by a small bomb hidden in a briefcase. At least five cars were damaged, a Reuters witness said.
Police closed off the area and were collecting evidence.
Egyptian security forces are conducting a crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood supporters following last month’s ousting of
Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.
