The explosion rattled near a mosque in the Libyan city of Benghazi, leaving eight people dead, city residents told Sputnik.

A member of the Libyan National Army inspects the damage following a twin bombing inside a mosque in Benghazi, Libya February 9, 2018.

"A auto bomb exploded near the mosque of Abu Huraia", wrote the website Al Wasat, quoting the television 'Libya Roha Al Watan". According to the latest information, more than 40 people were killed, while 80 were injured.

Two weeks ago, around 35 people were killed by a twin bombing at a mosque in the same city.

Haftar began his military campaign in response to continuous bombings and assassinations by on Islamist militants in Benghazi in May 2014.

Mr al-Werfalli is wanted by the ICC for allegedly carrying out a number of similar killings.

Werfalli on Tuesday said he had handed himself in to military police under Haftar's command, but it was not possible to confirm his arrest from an independent source.

Libya descended into chaos after the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed ruler Moammar Gadhafi.

The UN-backed government in Tripoli also condemned the bombing, advocating "joint efforts to fight terrorism and those who threaten the safety and security of the country, and bring them to justice". Haftar supports the rival administration based in the east.
