French FM to travel to Libya after embassy attack


French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius will fly to Libya Tuesday following the attack on the French embassy in Tripoli, a diplomatic source told AFP.

"The minister will be leaving in a matter of hours," the source said. President Francois Hollande said earlier he had asked Fabius to dispatch a representative to Tripoli to assess the situation and oversee the repatriation of two injured embassy guards.
