A car bomb in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Saturday killed two U.N. staff, several medical sources said.

A Reuters reporter at a Benghazi hospital saw a list of names of those killed identifying them as working for the United Nations Libya mission (UNSMIL).

UNSMIL spokesman Jean El Alam said via email that the organisation was “in the process of gathering information”.

The explosion happened in front of a shopping mall and bank. At least one burned out U.N. car could be seen at the scene.
