BENGHAZI - A car filled with explosives blew up on Sunday in the middle of a busy shopping district in Benghazi, Libya's second largest city, killing the driver.

"The car was filled with explosives and went off before it reached its target. The driver died and a passenger is in hospital," an official from the Supreme Security Council who declined to give his name told Reuters.

A Reuters journalist at the scene saw the remains of the driver inside the wrecked car. The street was closed off by dozens of police and military officials.
