A car bomb targeting security forces on Tuesday in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi killed 22 people and wounded 20, a spokesman for the forces and medical officials said.

The blast occurred in a residential area in the Guwarsha district, the scene of fighting between security forces loyal to Libya’s eastern government and an alliance of Islamists and other opponents.
