BENGHAZI, Libya - Four people were killed and 15 wounded when a rocket hit a residential district in the eastern Libyan port city of Benghazi on Sunday, medics said.

There was no immediate claim for the attack. Islamic State militants have claimed previous rocket attacks in Libya's second-largest city where army forces allied to armed locals have been fighting Islamist groups for more than a year.

The rocket attack on the busy Beirut Street came hours after a jet had attacked a bulldozer loaded with ammunition west of Benghazi, according to Nasser al-Hasi, an air force spokesman.
