    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, NOVEMBER 13 - The spokesman for the Egyptian foreign ministry on Thursday called terrorist attacks across Libya "vile and criminal acts against the aspirations of the Libyan people". The car bomb explosion at the Egyptian embassy in Tripoli on Thursday "violates international rights and undermines historic relations between the two peoples," Badr Abdel Atti told the Egyptian news agency MENA.

    The foreign ministry official also condemned attacks on Wednesday in the eastern coastal cities of Tobruq and Al Bayda, saying "they target the aspirations of the Libyan people for freedom, stability and security".

    These attacks "put into doubt the importance of appeals for national political dialogue with terrorist groups that refuse to lay down their arms and renounce violence," the ministry official added.(ANSAmed).
