    Two people were killed in Libya on Sunday after three car bombs exploded in the capital city of Tripoli. The bombs went off near the country’s Interior Ministry and other security buildings and interrupted celebrations by Muslims in the city marking the festival of Eid al-Fitr, which ends the holy month of Ramadan. On responding to one explosion, police also found another car bomb that had failed to detonate. The attacks were reported to be the first of their kind in Libya since Muammar Gaddafi was driven from power a year ago.
