CAIRO, November 13. /TASS/. A massive explosion rocked outside the building housing the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Embassy in the Libyan city of Tripoli. The broadcaster Al Arabiya reports that the car bomb caused major damage to the diplomatic buildings.
As previously reported, one more car bomb went off not far from Egypt’s embassy in Tripoli. No information is yet available on victims and scale of destruction.
As regional observers say, the attacks could be a response to the Egypt and UAE governments’ support for the Council of Deputies (transistional parliament) and Libyan Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thani, who is against the radical Islamists controlling territory of Tripoli.
The extremists have been controlling the Libyan capital since summer. They see the General National Congress (the former transitional parliament), that lost its legitimacy when the members of the Council of Deputies were elected, as the only legitimate authority. The support Omar al-Hasi’s Cabinet of Ministers formed by the Congress as a counterweight to al-Thani’s government.
