Attack on Libyan church building kills two

TRIPOLI - An explosion on Sunday at a building belonging to a Coptic church in western Libya killed two Egyptian men and wounded two others, a military spokesman said.
Attackers threw a homemade bomb at an administration building belonging to the Egyptian Coptic church in Dafniya, close to the western city of Misrata, said Ibrahim Rajab of Misrata military council.
Libya has small communities of Egyptians, Greeks and Italians who account for most of the Christian minority in the predominantly Islamic country.
Libya's new rulers have struggled to impose their authority on a myriad of armed groups, who helped oust dictator Moammar Gaddafi last year but have yet to lay down their arms.
