At least four members of security forces loyal to Libya's recognized government were killed Friday in a car bombing in the city of Benghazi, the military said, in an attack claimed by ISIS.

Military spokesman Colonel Abdullah al-Shahaafi told AFP that the blast went off in the Hawari district of the city.

ISIS claimed the attack in a statement posted on Islamist websites, saying more than 25 were killed and that it targeted forces of General Khalifa Haftar, the recognised government's chief of staff.

Haftar's forces on Tuesday recaptured a jihadist stronghold in the Mediterranean city.
