Four members of east Libyan security forces were killed in the city of Derna on Wednesday by a suicide bomber bearing a white flag as he drove towards a group of soldiers, a military spokesman said.

Ahmed al-Mismari, a spokesman for Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA), said the white Chevrolet approached the troops in central Derna asking to leave the combat zone, but the suicide bomber detonated explosives packed into the vehicle when he got close.
