Car Bomb Hits French Embassy in Tripoli, 2 Guards Injured

TEHRAN (FNA)- A car bomb exploded at the French Embassy in the Libyan capital Tripoli, injuring two guards, embassy officials said.

Initial reports said the attack was a booby-trapped car.

"There was an attack on the embassy. We think it was a booby-trapped car," an official told Reuters, adding that the blast caused a lot of damage.

Black smoke billowed from the wreckage of the vehicle that exploded close to the Embassy's entrance as fire crews arrived to put out the flames. Part of the Embassy complex's outer wall was partly destroyed in the explosion as well as two nearby cars.
