The Islamic State group (IS) claimed responsibility, Friday, for bombing truck inside police training center in Zliten, west Libya, that killed 47 persons in the worst attack since the ouster of  Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

“This operation is one in a series of the battle of Abu al-Mughira al-Qahtani, which will not stop until we liberate all of Libya”, Islamic State’s Tripoli militancy said in a statement.

The truck bomb exploded at the police training center in the coastal town of Zliten just as hundreds of recruits had gathered for a morning meeting. ِAlmost 200 people killed and wounded, many by shrapnel.
