According to China Central Television, the bomb injured the man who himself created and set it off, but did not injure any other people in the bustling airport terminal.

A car exploded outside the French embassy in the Libyan capital Tripoli Tuesday morning in what was likely a planned attack. No group has claimed responsibility for the explosion, which wounded two French security guards and damaged part of the embassy’s compound.
French President Francois Hollande has called on Libya to investigate the bombing, which reportedly killed nobody, but injured three: “France expects the Libyan authorities to shed the fullest light on this unacceptable act, so that the perpetrators are identified and brought to justice.”
