A truck bomb has exploded in the Libyan town of Zliten near a police camp, killing at least 60 police officers and wounding at least 200, officials said.

No one claimed responsibility for the bombing on Thursday, but a local Islamic State affiliate has been trying to spread to Zliten from its central stronghold of Sirte.

Zliten Hospital spokesman Moamar Kaddi says rescue crews have they only managed to extract 60 bodies out of the wreckage, and Libyan officials said they believed there might be dozens more dead.
