Aguila Saleh Issa, the speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives, told Sputnik he believed that Turkey was supporting terrorism in the country.
In January, two bomb-laden cars exploded near a mosque in Benghazi following prayer time. Forty people were killed. Two people were killed in a similar incident last week.
"Terrorist organizations are behind this [explosions in Benghazi], unfortunately with support of foreign countries, with Turkey’s support," he said.
According to the speaker, the Greek coastguard's seizure of a vessel carrying explosive materials from Turkey to Libya's city of Misurata in January argues in favour of his claims.
In early January, the Greek coastguard detected the Tanzanian-flagged vessel Andromeda, which was carrying explosive materials from Turkey to Libya. The ship was stopped for a check and was then transported to the port of Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete. During a search of the ship, 29 containers with explosive materials, detonators and other equipment were found, while the ship's eight-person crew was arrested.
