Benghazi police bombed for second time in three days

Two more police stations were attacked in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi in the early hours of Sunday morning, the local council said, after two others were bombed on Friday.

The attacks are the latest signs of insecurity in Libya's second city, birthplace of the uprising that toppled the dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Nearly two years after his fall, rebel groups that helped to overthrow him are still refusing to disband and remain a more visible presence on the streets than the state security forces.
