The Islamic State terrorist group has claimed responsibility for suicide bomb attacks on Libyas foreign ministry in Tripoli, which have left at least three people dead and over half-a-dozen injured.
Three armed gunmen stormed the foreign ministry of Libyas internationally recognized government in Tripoli on Tuesday morning, killing three employees and injuring at least ten others. Later in the day, the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack, through its propaganda outlet.
The assault on the diplomatic compound began at around 9:30am with the detonation of a car bomb in front of the building. Immediately afterwards the gunmen opened fire and two of them managed to get inside and blow themselves up. The third attacker was killed in the gunfire exchange with the ministry guards.
