Car bomb explodes at rebel headquarters in Libya

The general in charge of Libya's rebel forces says a car bomb exploded in front of their headquarters in northeast Benghazi.

Gen. Abdel-Fattah Younis says no one was injured, but an APTN cameraman saw a person with an arm cut by shattered glass.

The blast apparently blew out windows in a high-rise near Benghazi courthouse, where the rebel committee has its headquarters.

Younis visited the courthouse to assess damage late Tuesday. He said it was the first car bomb to explode in the rebel capital.
