Bomb attack on French Embassy

A car bomb exploded outside the French Embassy in the capital Tripoli yesterday, wounding three people.

Two years after the country's civil war, Libya is struggling to maintain security, build a unified army and reining in militias, which include rebels who fought to oust Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Last September 11, four Americans, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed when al-Qaeda-linked militants attacked the US diplomatic mission in the eastern city of Benghazi. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack on the French Embassy.
