BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Five people were killed and eight wounded when a rocket hit a residential district in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Friday, officials said.

An army commander blamed Islamist fighters for the rocket strike. Both sides have been fighting for a year for control of the country's second-largest city.
