    (ANSAmed) - ROME, JANUARY 7 - A truck loaded with explosives struck a police training center in the Libyan city of Zliten, 60 km west of Misrata, with some 50 feared dead, according to the website of Russia Today.

    Dozens were reported wounded at the Al-Jahfal training center. The website of Al Jazeera reported that four hospitals in the area are in a state of emergency following the attack.

    Russia Today said the hospital of Misrata, some 60 kilometers from Zliten, asked citizens to donate blood.

    Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack yet though ISIS is feared to be behind it as the group is gaining ground and taking advantage of divisions within the country. At least nine soldiers were killed in the past few days in clashes with the jihadists and at least five oil depots have been burning for days. (ANSAmed)
