The officials say an explosives-laden car detonated on Tuesday morning outside the embassy building, causing significant damage. There was no information on casualties or other details.

The two security officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. They say the motives for the attack - the first such assault on an embassy in the Libyan capital- were not immediately clear.
