TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — A security official in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi says a car bomb has killed the head of a criminal investigations unit there.

The security official said Imrajae el-Ereybi's car was targeted on Tuesday in the neighborhood of el-Selmani in the heart of the city. The official said el-Ereybi died in a hospital shortly after the car bomb attack and a second passenger was wounded. He spoke anonymously because he was not authorized to brief reporters.

Col. Jumaa el-Misri confirmed el-Ereybi led one of the criminal investigation units in the volatile city.

Benghazi has been hit by a wave of targeted killings in recent months as security agencies struggle to secure the country. Several senior criminal investigators in Benghazi have been killed since the country's 2011 civil war.
