BENGHAZI, Libya: A double suicide bombing on a military base in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi killed at least four soldiers on Tuesday, military and medical officials said.
The two attackers, who detonated car bombs, targeted a Libyan army special forces barracks in the Bouatni area of Benghazi, an army official told AFP.
A medical official said the blasts killed four people, not including the two attackers themselves, as well as an "unknown number of wounded".
The attack hit just as the men were breaking the fast for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the military source added, saying that a bomber on a lorry forced his way onto the base before detonating the vehicle.
This was followed by a second attacker in a car, the military official said.
No group claimed the double bombing, which came a day after deadly clashes between the army and Islamist groups.
At least 16 people, mostly soldiers, were killed and 80 wounded in the clashes.
Parts of the eastern city of Benghazi have become strongholds for Islamist groups since the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi.
