The second went off thirty minutes later at a Winners restaurant in the same town, wrecking the restaurant’s entrance. The third reported bombing happened outside of a Pizza Hut in Tripoli around the same time as the first, damaging windows and furniture.

All three restaurants were closed at the time. No motives were given by police.
