One of those killed was a local employee of the United Nations mission in Libya, an official in Benghazi's Criminal Research Department told dpa.

Friends and families of the late Mr Tabuatausole posted on social media expressing their sadness and sympathies.

Bainimarama on his official Twitter page says today we mourn the death of one of our own who was senselessly killed in a auto bomb.

The most unsafe scenario is implemented in Libya because of growing terrorist activity there, Russia's acting Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said at the extraordinary meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in Libya.

"Mitiga airport has been targeted by fire this morning, the first day of Eid al-Adha", the airport's management said in a statement on Facebook, referring to the three-day Muslim holiday that began on Sunday. "The explosion left two people killed and 10 more injured, including a child", the source said.

On Friday, the government in Tripoli said it had already accepted a United Nations proposal for a ceasefire during the holiday.

Depending on your behavior, it can be determined whether or not you are using exam dumps and if so, penalties will be imposed. As you can see the retake policy is a bit lenient, but it is still wise to make sure that you pass at the first attempt.

Keita said the United Nations doesn't intend to evacuate from Libya and she expressed hope that both sides will abide by their commitment to the Eid cease-fire.

Thick black smoke rose from the area and firefighters rushed to put out the flames that gutted two cars, including a white vehicle like those used by the UN.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, which happened as a United Nations convoy was passing through the area.

Last year, at least 33 people were killed in twin vehicle bombings that struck close to a mosque in Benghazi.

More than 1,000 people have been killed, over 5,700 injured, and an estimated 120,000 displaced since April when Haftar's forces challenged the GNA for the control of Tripoli. Thousands of African migrants captured by Libyan forces supported by the European Union are trapped in detention centers. Fighters have also resorted heavily to airstrikes and attacks by drones. An airstrike on one facility early last month killed more than 50 people, mainly migrants held in a hangar that collapsed on top of them.

Benghazi was the birthplace of a 2011 revolt that toppled Libya's long-time dictator Moamer Gaddafi. But it has faced stiff resistance from fighters aligned with the UN-recognised government, which is aided by Turkey and Qatar.
