Libyan authorities, which have struggled to contain militias since they overthrew Moamer Gaddafi in 2011, condemned "the terrorist attack" and declared three days of national mourning.
Three more people were injured in the attack, while three are listed as missing, the government in Tripoli said in a statement.
The checkpoint is located 50 kilometers east of Benghazi, which has seen a series of deadly attacks in recent months.
The attacks mainly targeted security forces and foreign missions and claimed the lives of 300 people, AFP reported.
