Libya: French Embassy In Tripoli Hit By VBIEDUpdate: Video Of Aftermath
One resident stated: "It was a big mistake to site the French embassy in our neighbourhood"
A car bomb has exploded outside the French embassy in the Libyan capital Tripoli, wounding two French guards and several residents. The blast in Tripoli destroyed the embassy's ground-floor reception area and perimeter wall, as well as damaging neighbouring homes and shops.I'm sure the jihadi will be caught like those responsible for the Benghazi terror attack were, oh wait... Update: Here is another image taken shortly after Update II:
French President Francois Hollande called on Libya to act swiftly over this "unacceptable" attack. It is the first major attack on a foreign embassy in the Libyan capital. Tuesday's explosion happened shortly after 07:00 (05:00 GMT) in a smart residential area of Tripoli. One of the embassy's guards was severely injured while the other suffered lighter injuries. Several residents were also slightly hurt.
One young girl suffered a spinal cord injury and was being transferred to neighbouring Tunisia for treatment, her father told the BBC[...] Many neighbours who gathered in the street to survey the damage were shaken and upset by what had happened, our correspondent says. They told her that there was a lack of proper policing for such a potentially high-profile target "It was a big mistake to site the French embassy in our neighbourhood," a local resident said.
