Militants attack top Libya hotel

Militants have attacked a hotel popular with foreigners in the Libyan capital Tripoli, officials say.


At least two gunmen stormed the Corinthia Hotel and opened fire in the reception area. A car bomb exploded outside the hotel shortly afterwards.

It is not clear whether the gunmen are still inside the hotel, and whether any civilians are trapped inside.

A Twitter account linked to Islamic State said IS militants attacked the hotel. The claim cannot be verified.
