TRIPOLI, Libya—A year to the day following an attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi that killed four Americans including the ambassador Christopher Stevens, the security situation in Libya has gone from bad to worse, say locals and analysts.

On Wednesday morning, unknown assailants detonated a car bomb near Benghazi's Foreign Ministry building which decades ago housed the US consulate, security officials said. No one was killed in the blast.

It is the latest in a string of bombings and assassination attempts plaguing Benghazi, the cradle of the Libyan revolution, which ended with the death in late 2011 of former leader Moammar Gadhafi.
