A bomb has been found under an Italian embassy car in Libya’s capital Tripoli.
Diplomats had parked the car and gone shopping in the central Zawiyat Dahmani area when the driver noticed the device, officials said.
Police cordoned the area off and the bomb exploded, causing damage mainly to the back of the car. No-one was killed or injured.
A foreign ministry spokesman in Rome said two embassy officials had been travelling in the car.
