The United States on Tuesday called on Libya to punish the assailants behind a car bombing of the French embassy in Tripoli and said it stood ready to assist Paris on the case if needed.

State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said that the United States condemned the attack, which caused extensive damage to the French mission, and extended sympathies to the two guards who were injured.
