Car bomb targets French Embassy in Libya

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - A car bomb targeted the French Embassy in the Libyan capital early today, wounding two French guards and a Libyan teenager in an attack that President Francois Hollande denounced as an assault not only on France but all countries engaged in the fight against terrorism. Two years after the country’s civil war, Libya is struggling to maintain security, build a unified army and rein in militias, which include rebels who fought to oust the country’s longtime dictator, Moammar Gadhafi, in 2011.
