Tripoli, May 13 (EFE).- At least 12 people died and an undetermined number were wounded in a car bomb explosion Monday outside a hospital in the eastern city of Benghazi, a Libyan security forces official told Efe.
Women and children were among the victims.
The explosion, which could be heard several kilometers (miles) away, occurred around midday, the peak time for traffic in the area, which has made it harder for security forces to determine the exact number of people injured, the source said.
The blast wave damaged buildings and stores near the hospital.
