In recent months, two incidents involving IEDs concealed in mannequins were documented in Libya. In April 2016, Libyan National Army forces discovered an IED hidden inside a fully-clothed mannequin in a warehouse in western Benghazi, and in June 2016, the LNA Benghazi EOD unit found another IED in mannequin disguise, this one booby-trapped, in al-Guarsha district, southwestern Benghazi. This mannequin IED, fitted with an RC initiation system, was covered with a blanket and arranged to resemble a corpse. Upon closer inspection, the IED was discovered and neutralized.
