Libya’s Tripoli government to launch inquiry into incident

Libya police

Libya’s self-declared government in Tripoli has condemned an attack on a police training centre in Zliten that killed dozens of recruits. At least 47 people were killed, when Libya’s worst bomb attack since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, hit the facility as hundreds gathered for a morning meeting.

No group immediately claimed the attack, but suicide blasts and car bombings have increased in Libya, as Islamist militants have taken advantage of the country’s chaos to expand their presence. Tripoli government’s spokesperson Mohammed Ismail said they will launch a full inquiry into the incident.
