AMMAN, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Wednesday condemned a terrorist attack in Libya's Benghazi that resulted in the death of tens of civilians and the injury of many others, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

Jordan's Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said the Jordanian government condemned the attack and rejected all forms of violence and terrorist acts that seek to sow seeds of sedition among the Libyans.

Such attacks, he said, were aimed at hampering efforts to realize stability in Libya.

Condemning the attack, the minister called for intensified international efforts to uproot terrorism.

He voiced Jordan's solidarity with Libya and for its efforts to restore stability.

The death toll of twin car bomb attacks in eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has risen to 34, a media source said Wednesday.

Two car bomb explosions hit Benghazi on Tuesday night. The first one exploded in front of a mosque as worshipers exited the mosque after night prayer. The second one exploded in the same location following the arrival of ambulances.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks yet. Enditem
