The U.S. Department of State denied on Wednesday rumours on the arrest of four American experts near Benghazi.
In a statement to Alhurra, a U.S. channel, an American official said there were not any Americans in Libya.
There were rumors that four Americans had been detained by military officials who cooperated with the Libyan National Army (LNA).
These allegations were made after a bomb-laden vehicle exploded outside a shopping mall and bank in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi, killing at least two U.N. security staff.
U.N. Envoy in Libya Ghassan Salame condemned the explosion in al-Hawari area in Benghazi, which killed members of UNSML, describing it as a “cowardly act.”
