An explosion of a landmine in Sabir neighbourhood in Benghazi – eastern Libya – has amputated the two legs of a 14-year-old boy.

The head of the media office at Al-Jalaa Accidents Hospital in Benghazi, Fadiya Al-Barghathi, the amputation was decided after seeing the terrible injury the boy was suffering from.

The boy stepped on a landmine when he was playing football in Sabri after his family returned to the neighbourhood recently.

According to the hospital, the boy is stable.
