Fox News reported that a U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Eastern Libya was bombed by a home made IED. No one was injured.

A security official in Benghazi said the attack was claimed by the Prisoner Omar Abdelrahman Group, which left a letter “threatening American interests” in the North African nation.

This attack comes immediately after the death of Abu Yahya al-Libi by a U.S. drone. Al-Libi was the terror network’s second-highest leader.

Abu Yahya al-Libi had been focusing on securing an al Qaeda presence in eastern Libya.

On May 22, the same group claimed an attack on the offices of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

On Monday, rebels seized the Tripoli airport but government forces regained control by force.

Libya was the beneficiary of about $1 billion in U.S. military air support as well as special forces on the ground during the rebellion against Gaddafi.

Libya is in disarray and al Qaida has a presence there.
