ISIS storms foreign office in Libya: At least four dead in Tripoli terror attack

From the Express and the Libya Herald Malta, 25 December 2018:

Libya’s Tripoli-based Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aligned with the internationally-recognized Faiez Serraj Presidency Council and Government of National Accord, has confirmed that this morning’s terror attack was a suicide attack.

An explosion and a shooting took place after terrorists stormed Libya’s foreign ministry in the capital of Tripoli. The three attackers were suspected to be Islamic State militants, the security source, who requested not to be named, said. 

The three attackers began their assault with a car bomb, damaging vehicles and buildings, and then opened fire on the ministry. Two managed to get inside and blow themselves up. The other was killed by ministry guards, the source said. The health ministry said at least eleven people were wounded.
