BENGHAZI, Libya--A bomb blast rocked the playground of a primary school in Libya's restive second city Benghazi during recess on Wednesday, wounding 12 children, two of them seriously, officials said.
Witnesses said a bomb was thrown over the school wall as the children were playing.
Benghazi, cradle of the 2011 NATO-backed uprising that toppled Moammar Gadhafi, has seen near-daily attacks on security and other targets in recent months as the weak central government has tried to rein in former rebel brigades turned militias.
