A group of armed gunmen attacked the South Korean embassy in Tripoli on Sunday, killing two Libyan guards and injuring another officer, Foreign Ministry officials said.

The incident took place at around 1:20 a.m. Libyan time when the assailants fired some 40 shots from a machine gun as they drove by the embassy, an official said.

The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility about two hours later on Twitter, saying it had “removed” two guards at the facility.

The three officers who were affiliated with Libya’s Interior Ministry were sent to a nearby hospital by local residents, but two later died.
