Three United Nations employees have been killed and dozens of civilians, including children, injured after a car bomb exploded in front of a shopping mall in the Libyan city of Benghazi, just as the UN convoy was passing by. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the deadly explosion, which also killed two security guards working with the UN. Dozens of civilians suffered injuries, with local authorities saying that many of the wounded were children. The attack took place amid a ceasefire between the Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, and the Government of National Accord (GNA), brokered by the UN ahead of Eid al-Adha religious holiday.
