The French Embassy in Tripoli was attacked early this morning by a car bomb that left the scene, located in a residential area, one of destruction with the embassy's ground-floor reception area and neighboring homes badly damaged. Two guards and a few civilians were injured, but no fatalities were reported.
Libyan Foreign Minister Mohammed Abdel Aziz quickly condemned the attack, while the French President called on the Libyan government to "shed the fullest light on this unacceptable attack" and deployed his own foreign minister to Tripoli who said officials from both nations would work together to find those responsible.
No groups have claimed responsibility, but it should come as no surprise that France is definitely high on terrorist target lists, as they have both assisted greatly in the overthrow of former Libyan despot Colonel Gadaffi in 2011 and more recently the liberation of Northern Mali from Al-Qaeda aligned jihadists.

But every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
“-— a car bomb that left the scene “??WTF-—how does that work? Maybe it just backfired? Or do they mean the car left in really small pieces? Maybe the writer misplaced his modifier the same place the bomb was placed? there’s a French guy involved someplace so maybe something is lost in translation/
