Tripoli, 25 January 2016:
A man in police custody is suspected of trying to plant a bomb outside the . . .[restrict]Sudanese Embassy in the Gargaresh district of Tripoli.
The suspect, who has not been named, was picked up by the Abu Sleem police after a bomb alleged to contain 200 grammes of TNT was discovered at the embassy. Apparently connected to a mobile phone, the device failed to detonate. It is unclear where the bomb was discovered or how the suspect was arrested.
That quantity of explosive could have produced a considerable blast, a member of the local Criminal Investigation Division explained.
The police are saying that the man, a Libyan from the Gargaresh area, was claiming that he had been paid by an unnamed source to plant the bomb. His case has been referred to the Attorney General’s office. [/restrict]
