A car bomb explosion near a hospital in the Libyan city of Benghazi has killed several people.


The death toll is unclear. Local officials initially said nine people had been killed. A hospital spokesman later said three bodies had been found.


The blast follows a string of bombings in the eastern city in recent days.


Security remains precarious in Libya since the uprising against long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi, with protests by militias and attacks by Islamists.
