Twin car bombs kill two in Libya capital


TRIPOLI (AFP) - Twin car bombs near security force buildings in the Libyan capital early on Sunday killed two people and wounded four as Mulims marked the start of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, a security official said.

Tripoli's security chief Colonel Mahmud al-Sherif told AFP the twin blasts were car bombs, blaming loyalists of now slain dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

"They were two car bombs detonated by remote control," Sherif said.

The bombs struck at dawn near the interior ministry and near the military academy on Omar al-Mokhtar Avenue.

The avenue, one of Tripoli's main thoroughfares, was closed to traffic, an AFP correspondent reported. Checkpoints were set up on other major streets in the city centre.

People who restored Catholicism were the same People who prosecuted Prostestans to be executed.
