TRIPOLI - A car belonging to an Egyptian diplomat was blown up near his home in Benghazi on Monday, a day after two people died in bombings authorities blamed on supporters of the country's deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Security sources told Reuters a homemade device exploded underneath the vehicle of the embassy's first secretary Abdelahim Rifai. No one was hurt in the attack.

The sources described the blast as a "criminal act."
