France condemns Libya embassy attack

Help

The French foreign minister has strongly condemned an apparent car bomb explosion outside the country's embassy in the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

Two guards were wounded in the blast, which completely destroyed the embassy's reception area and parts of neighbouring homes.

The BBC's Rana Jawad says embassies in the region have been on alert since France began its military operation in Mali.
