Benghazi

Place

Benghazi is the second largest city in Libya, the largest city in the region of Cyrenaica, and the former joint capital of Libya. In 2014, the city became Libya's constitutionally de facto legislative capital, although the country's parliament, the Majlis al Nuwwab, convened in Tobruk as of Summer 2014 because of poor security in Benghazi. Benghazi's wider metropolitan area is also a district of Libya. The port city is located on the Mediterranean Sea.
