Benghazi Bomb Wounds Four Policemen
2012-12-13
[An Nahar] Four Libyan coppers were maimed on Wednesday when a bomb went kaboom! in front of their station in the eastern city of Benghazi, security sources said.

"The blast coincided with a traffic police vehicle passing in front of Al-Fwihet station," police officer Adel Jibril told Agence La Belle France Presse.

"Two traffic coppers inside the vehicle were seriously maimed," along with two coppers who were posted outside the station, he added.

Jibril said preliminary investigations suggested the blast was caused by a suitcase full of explosives.

"We still do not know if the bomb was placed in front of the station or in the car," he continued.

Another officer, Ezzedin al-Fazzani, said the car was "completely wrecked" by the kaboom, which left a large crater in front of the station and partly damaged the building's facade.

Security forces deployed to the scene to secure the perimeter and scan the area for any other explosives, an AFP journalist at the scene said.

Benghazi, cradle of the 2011 revolt that toppled veteran strongman Muammar Qadaffy
...a reminder that a single man with an idea can change an entire nation, usually for the worse...
, has recently witnessed several kabooms and a wave of attacks targeting coppers and military officers.

The new authorities, who are struggling to rebuild the national army and form a professional police, have failed to bring the perpetrators to justice.
