A truck bomb attack on a police training centre in a western town of Libya killed at least 65 people and 127 had been wounded, according to hospital and police officials. Witnesses said yesterday that the truck crashed into the gate of the police academy in the coastal city of Zliten, about 160 kilometers east of the capital, Tripoli.
The truck exploded as hundreds of recruits were gathering at the academy. The UN Special representative to Libya, Martin Kobler, said the blast was a suicide attack. No one has claimed responsibility for the assault.
