A car bomb in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Saturday killed two UN staff, several medical sources said.

A Reuters reporter at a Benghazi hospital saw a list of names of those killed identifying them as working for the United Nations Libya mission (UNSMIL).

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Saturday condemned a car bomb attack that killed two UN staff members and injured three, a UN spokesman said. 

"The secretary-general calls on all parties to respect the humanitarian truce during Eid al Adha and return to the negotiating table to pursue the peaceful future the people of Libya deserve," UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.
