Reports of Benghazi explosion on anniversary of US Consulate attack

The Libyan Foreign Ministry building in Benghazi was reportedly bombed overnight on the one-year anniversary of the attack on the U.S. Consulate that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens.

A car bomb is said to have been the source of the explosion, which also damaged a branch of the Libyan Central Bank, Fox News reported.

According to Fox:

“The car had a large amount of explosives and was placed just next to the building,” Abdullah Zaidi, a local security official, told Reuters.

The officials told the Associated Press that several passers-by were slightly injured by the blast, which blew out windows in nearby buildings. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The following tweets were published by Twitchy in the early hours of Wednesday morning showing alleged photos of the aftermath of the bombing, according to “journalists and resident’s” on the ground in Benghazi.
