Explosion Rocks Moroccan Embassy in Libya

A bomb blast has ripped through the Moroccan Embassy in Tripoli, hours after unidentified gunmen attacked South Korea's mission in the Libyan capital.

The Moroccan Embassy in Tripoli has been damaged by a bomb explosion that took place shortly after unknown gunmen assaulted the South Korean mission in the Libyan capital, killing two local security guards and wounding a third person, sources said.

"A bomb inside a bag went off near the gate of the Moroccan Embassy in the Bin Ashour area in central Tripoli," a local security official said on Monday. He added that no one was hurt in the bombing.

The sound of the explosion has been described as "very strong" by a witness, who said that the blast shook the building "for a few seconds."

Militants claiming loyalty to the Islamic State have reportedly said on Twitter that they were responsible for both attacks.
