A car bomb at a barracks has left at least five soldiers dead in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, medical sources say.

The attack is said to have targeted people leaving a graduation ceremony for officers.

Benghazi is often the scene of attacks by Islamist groups and separatists.

It is the largest city in eastern Libya, where some groups want more autonomy and a greater share of the region’s oil wealth.

No group has said it carried out Monday’s attack.
