“The projects then will be joining the general electricity network immediately after they are done.” The media bureau cited GECOL as saying.

Three people working for Libya’s state electricity company were killed in a landmine explosion on Saturday in the eastern city of Benghazi, according to a Libyan spokesman.  

The blast took place during maintenance works for electricity lines in Benghazi’s western district of Al-Qawarishah, Tariq al-Kharraz, a spokesman for East Libya-based Interior Ministry, told Anadolu Agency.

A fourth worker was injured in the explosion.

Last month, a Libyan minor was killed in a similar landmine explosion in the city.
