A car bomb exploded near the offices of the military police in Tripoli early this morning, a senior security source said, in the first such attack in the Libyan capital since the start of a revolt that toppled the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.

The source said the blast slightly wounded a Tunisian national, but it could not say who might have been behind it.

Several violent incidents have rocked Libya in recent days Libya but these have been mostly confined to the eastern part of the country and included offices of military intelligence and the assassination of a former senior military officer.
