At least four people were killed and 14 wounded in a car explosion in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi on Saturday.
The head of an anti-corruption body, Mohamed Bugaighis, was among those killed in the attack in the city's central Keesh district, officials aid, news agency Reuters reported.
Bugaighis was a supporter of the Libyan National Army (LNA). The LNA has been carrying on with a military campaign against Islamists in Benghazi.
A witness told Reuters the explosion happened close to Bugaighis as he was leaving his car to visit a cafe he frequented.
Although the city is not under the control of the Khalifa Haftar-led army, his forces siezed several key neighbourhoods earlier this year.
