A mosque bombing in Libya's second city of Benghazi has killed one person and wounded more than 62 people, the city's hospital has said.

An explosion took place at a mosque in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Friday, residents said.

It would be recalled that a few weeks ago, at least 33 people were killed in a double vehicle bombing in Benghazi. The devices, placed in bags at the mosque doors, appear to have been activated remotely using a mobile phone, a military source said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.

"This heinous act should not provide a justification for revenge attacks".

The UN-backed government in Tripoli also condemned the bombing, advocating "joint efforts to fight terrorism and those who threaten the safety and security of the country, and bring them to justice".

Maldives court reverses decision to free opponents of President Yameen from prison
Nasheed has also urged the United States "to stop all financial transactions of Maldives regime leaders going through U.S. banks". After Yameen declared a 15-day emergency on Tuesday, Nasheed called on India , the main regional power, to intervene.

The summary executions are believed to be carried out by Mahmoud al-Werfalli, a special forces commander for the LNA.

The fighting in Benghazi was part of a broader conflict that developed in Libya after former ruler Muammar Gaddafi was removed from power and killed in a NATO-backed uprising in 2011.

Haftar, a possible contender in national elections that could be held by the end of 2018, has built his reputation on delivering stability in Benghazi and beyond, promising to halt the chaos that developed after a NATO-backed uprising ended Muammar Gaddafi's long rule almost seven years ago.

The UN has been trying to mediate for years, hoping elections can help stabilise Libya.

The North African nation has had competing governments aligned with rival military factions based in Tripoli and the east since 2014.
