The Libyan rebel's spokesman Abdelhafld Ghoga said Wednesday that the car explosion late Tuesday near the Courthouse, the rebel headquarter in Benghazi City, was an accident, not a criminal act, Xinhua reported.
Only several people around the scene got minor injuries. The owner of the car had turned himself in to the authorities, feeling regret about the accident, the spokesman said at a press briefing.
He said the explosive that led to the car explosion was not " home-made," claiming that the investigation has been conducted.
Libya has been witnessing nation-wide unrest for more than two months after the anti-government protests broke up in mid February, which demand an end to leader Muammar Gaddafi's 42-years rule.
