The explosion rattled near a mosque in the Libyan city of Benghazi, leaving eight people dead, city residents told Sputnik.

At least two people have been killed and scores wounded in a bombing at a mosque in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi, according to medical sources.

He said according to preliminary investigations, the bombing was carried out remotely.

Two weeks ago, around 35 people were killed by a twin bombing at a mosque in the same city.

"This heinous act should not provide a justification for revenge attacks".

Benghazi was at the center of three years of fierce fighting between extremists and forces loyal to Libyan military strongman Khalifa Haftar, who declared the city liberated last year.

"Direct or indiscriminate attacks against civilians are prohibited under global humanitarian law and constitute war crimes", the mission added, calling for "prompt, impartial investigations to bring perpetrators to justice".

President Jacob Zuma 'agrees to go'
In fixed income, the yield for the benchmark government bond due in 2026 was up 3.5 basis points to 8.435 percent. Zuma's presidency has been overshadowed by allegations of corruption.

The country has been since split between rival governments and militias.

Following last months bombing in Benghazi, video footage emerged of 10 blindfolded men being executed at the site of the attack.

Mr al-Werfalli is wanted by the ICC for allegedly carrying out a number of similar killings.

Libya has been plagued by unrest and political division since the uprising that toppled its former leader Muammar Gaddafi's regime in 2011.

Haftar, a possible contender in national elections that could be held by the end of 2018, has built his reputation on delivering stability in Benghazi and beyond, promising to halt the anarchy that ensued after a NATO-backed uprising ended Muammar Gaddafi's long rule almost seven years ago.

Haftar does not recognize the UN-backed government based in the western capital Tripoli.
