Car Bomb Wounds 2 at French Embassy in Tripoli

France has condemned a car bombing at its embassy in the Libyan capital, calling the attack a heinous act.

Officials say the explosion early Tuesday at the embassy in the Hay Andalus area of Tripoli wounded two guards and caused extensive damage. The Libyan Foreign Ministry calls the attack a "terrorist" incident.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius pledges to do everything necessary to find who was behind the bombing.

Libya has struggled with instability and violence since the ouster of long-time dictator Moammar Gadhafi in late 2011.

An attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last September killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
