Libya arrests 32 ‘Gaddafi loyalists’ for Tripoli car blasts

Libyan authorities have claimed that they have arrested 32 members of a network loyal to Gaddafi in connection with the twin car bombing in Tripoli.



Tripoli: Libyan authorities have claimed that they have arrested 32 members of a network loyal to slain dictator Muammar Gaddafi in connection with the recent twin car bombing in Tripoli.

Two people were killed by the blasts near the former military academy for women and the Interior Ministry.

The blasts on Sunday were the first deadly bomb attacks since Gaddafi`s overthrow in 2011.

The BBC quoted an official of Libya`s top security body, as saying that the network had been linked to the bombs.

The city`s head of security, Col Mahmoud Sherif, said the blast outside the military academy left two people dead and four or five injured.

He blamed Gaddafi supporters for the attacks, who he alleged were receiving financial backing from contacts based in neighbouring countries.

Another official, from the Supreme Security Committee that has been supervising security matters since Gaddafi`s fall, said that connections between the group and the attacks had been established.
