Libyan authorities have condemned the car bomb attack on the French embassy in Tripoli, describing it as a terrorist act.

"We strongly condemn this act, which we regard as a terrorist act against a brother nation that supported Libya during the revolution,” Libyan Foreign Minister Mohammed Abdel Aziz has told AFP at the scene of the incident.

A car bomb targeted the French embassy in the Libyan capital early on Tuesday, wounding two French guards. The blast completely destroyed the embassy's reception area and parts of neighbouring homes, according to the BBC.

French President Francois Hollande has denounced the attack as an assault not only against France but all countries engaged in the fight against terrorism.

An attack on the US consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi by armed men in September 2012 led to the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other American officials.
